In brief: No

Switching from depo to ocps has no bearing on pregnancy status in the future.
If you have medical conditions that make you a high risk pt in pregnancy, these won't change unless you have complications attributed to your pills (stroke, clots, embolization events, etc). You will be advanced maternal age (ama = >35 yo) but i don't consider this high risk by itself. Take good care of yourself.
