no, people get pregnant within a month after going off the pill and the babies are fine. In fact, some women get pregnant while they are ON the pill and the babies are fine. If it was risky for defects there would be a lot of hype and warnings about it. The shot contains the same hormones as the oral pill.

I got pregnant while on the pill with my first, and worried the hole way through - he was beautiful. I also had depo shots throughout the last number of years d fell pregnant twice again. No problems. I got pregnant this time probably only days after stopping the pill, never had a period at all and everything is still fine. I think the shot is actually three months worth, but not in one go - it slowly releases throughout that time so as to give the exact effect for the three months as if you were on the pill, but without having to think about taking it daily.
