Trying to conceive

I found in May that I had chlamydia after being with my fiance for over 2 years, we both got treated and I got my retest results back the other day and I'm all clear. I went to my local GUM clinic to get my tubes looked at and she said that she couldn't see any scarring and didn't think I had PID although she told me it was hard to diagnose. I had chlamydia before when I was 17 (now 20) from my first boyfriend who cheated on me a lot, I was clear of that though after the first treatment.
I was on the depo injection for 9 months (3 shots) and should have got my 4th shot at the end of April but didn't because I want to ttc in the next couple of years. I still haven't come back on my period and I know they say it can take up to a year but I keep getting worried, my mother-in-law keeps saying I probably should have come back on by now (thanks for the reassurance *sigh*!)
My main worry, is that even though the GUM nurse said my tubes aren't scarred and she couldn't see anything wrong, is that my tubes are blocked... I have had unprotected sex with my boyfriend tonnes of times since I've been with him and I have never conceived, before my injection my periods were heavy but normal. I don't know if I'm being paranoid or what but it's really getting to me, it makes me really sad to the point where I have to try and hold back tears, I don't know who to talk to it about because I told the GUM nurse I wanted to have an ultrasound and she wouldn't do it. All I want is reassurance that my tubes aren't blocked, I get so worried about it it's unreal.
So what I want to know is what do you think I can do to calm myself? The only way I can think is making my GP let me get an ultrasound. Also do you think that my periods should have come back by now?
