i had been on the depo shot for 4yrs and i never bled. i got a shot in Jan 2011, and started bleeding in June 2011,i bled until Jan 2012...in Nov. 2011 i was told that my estrogen level was low, so i was put on the pill. The dr stopped the pill b/c i bled heavier. now i take nothing....I stopped bleeding the day before my bday (jan.11,2012), and had sex the night of my birthday...is it possible for me to get pregnant????

I need your help. I got married in 2008. I got pregnant then but i didnot want this child and so i aborted it as my husband died while i was pregnant. Now, I have managed to get married again.I donot want want to tell my would be husband that i was pregnant earlier. I am worried, will my would be husband come to know about my previous pregnancy if i donot tell him?
