    ive been on the Depo shot since i was about 13 or 14 im 21 now and im kinda afraid that i have ruined my chances of ever being able to get pregnant when i want to now since ive been on the shot for so long does anyone kno if the shot does ruin ur chances of being able to get pregnant

    No, the shot does not ruin your chances of getting pregnant any more than being on the pill for a long time does. It might take a bit for the hormones to be out of your system but once they are, you should be able to get pregnant.
