why can't we conceive?

My partner and I are both 27 and fairly healthy. I was on the depo provera injections for about 6 years, came off it for 1year then had 1 more before we decided I would come off it. It's been 15months since then and I'm still not pregnant. Iv fallen pregnant before when I was much younger (but for personal reasons didn't go through with the pregnancy) so I know I can fall which makes my boyfriend think he may be the one with the problem. Any input as to why it hasn't happened to us so far or ways in which we can increase our chances would be greatly appreciated :-)

First of all getting the depo shot was a bad thing to do. I know when girls are in that for a while they have problems getting pregnant, problems with their menstrual cycles and more. You definitely need to get yourself checked. If you're getting normal period's each month you probably aren't ovulating which in that case your doctor will prescribe Clomid. Your partner can get himself checked out as well and get a sperm count.

I took depo for years stopped getting it at 18 got pregnant and miscarried at 21 then found out I have pcos then after my miscarriage it took me 4 years to get pregnant again and then I had my daughter 4 months early so its possible it might take awhile but don't lose hope
