Our expert says:
The injectable forms of contraception do not cause infertility. They work by preventing ovulation and they can take between 6 and 9 months from the last injections to wear out of your system and then start spontaneous ovulation naturally. However, since you have stopped these contraceptives almost 4 years ago and have still not fallen pregnant then you have definitely falling into the category of infertility. There are many causes for infertility and I would suggest that you see your gynaecologist or a fertility specialist to ascertain why you are having difficulty in falling pregnant.
