Okay so I have two stories from different ends of the spectrum.

My friend – stopped the depo two years ago and has had normal periods for about 6 months, shes still not pregnant.

A work college – Got pregnant while on the injection

So lets hope your inbetween those two πŸ™‚

Not TTC yet but yes Dr. Google is definitely not your friend after depo. I’ve been off since Oct last year and only now am I starting to feel normal and even thou I have only had one normal period (which was last month – I bled for 7 weeks straight then stopped, a few weeks later got my normal pms (pre-BC) symptoms and a normal length period) currently around the time I should be ovulating and all seems to be going to plan.

we’ve decided to start in March/April so hopefully other people (and OP) can chime in with some positive stories to make me less worried that I’ve stuffed up my chances

@Lily2323:  My best friend was on depo for many years and it took them close to 2 years. I hope that isn’t the case for you. But she did get preggo and it could have just been her, not the depo. GL.

My last shot was Sept. 2011, I still haven’t had any form of a period. Google scares me to death. I’m just trying to get a regular period. I wish my doctor would have told me that it can take so long after stoping to ovulate. Hopefully you get pregnant soon!

I was on depo for a LONG time- like 10 years. I got off of it 1 year before our wedding, got 4 regular periods, then got pregnant twice (one miscarriage) in 6 months.

I was on depo for 6 years, then Mirena IUD. I got the IUD out and got pregnant on my second cycle trying. One of my besties was on Depo for 10 years, stopped Depo in Feb 2012, started trying in Aug 2012, and got pregnant on her first cycle!

Lily2323:  I am wondering if you have had any luck yet? I received my last Depo injection on 7/26/13, started the pill on 10/14/13 (when Depo would have been due), and took my last BC pill on 2/23/14. We are now TTC and I have also read horror stories so im just wondering how things have been going for you in the last year?

I, too, have been off depo for a while. had my last shot 6/2012, started having regular periods in 1/2013 and have been trying ever since with a few months gap in the middle for DH’s deployment. No Luck πŸ™ We are in the middle of cycle 10 actively trying.

Just to chime in with a negative story… Currently on cycle 15 of TTC and no luck. I’ve been off depo since Oct 2012. I have been tested and I looks like everything is ok with me and back to ovulating. Everything is fine with DH too so we just wait πŸ™ 

Good luck everyone sounds like we need it!
