it varies from women to women, it could vary at the most between 8 months to a year, that is what i was told by my obgyn, so i hope that helps some...good luck.

Every women's body is different. I can say from experience that it took my body a while to recooperate. My husband and I tried for over a year (every month cycle) to get pregnant. And my GYN said that it was probably because I had used depo when I was in college (and that was almost 4 years ago). Remember depo shots last 3 months, typically, so I think it would take anywhere from 6 months to a year to be completely out of your system, but I'm not a doctor. My advise is make an appointment with your doctor and talk to him about it. Good Luck.

I had 3 depo shots. (I must add I think they should only recommended depo provera if there NO other forms of BC available, it's a posion)LOL sorry about my rant that evil little shot made me gain about 60-70 pounds in the nine months I was on it and gave me other bad side effects. Anyway, it took me about 10- 11 months to get preggers. I'm now about 6-7 weeks. (I wasn't trying tho)..... If you just quit or had your last shot. Don't expect to get pregnate right away. It took 6-7 months even to get my cycle back. Like many have said your wait may be shorter or longer depending on your body

How long will it to get your period again after you stop taking the depo shot??


Babe - April 24

I was on the depo shot for almost 8 yrs and got pregnant while I was still on it. I was three weeks away from getting another shot, I am now 20 weeks. I also have a friend of mine that had just gotten off the shot didn't get a period and just found out she is 3 months pregnant. I think it all depends on the woman.

my sister got pregnant about a month after she got off the shot, but they say you have a year.

Don't do it. My last shot was June 26, 02. I did not get my period until the following Spring, May I believe and that was only spotting. I didn't get pg. until November, 03. I have since suffered three miscarriages. My egg reserve is not healthy for a 30 year old. I have been seeing specialists for three months now hoping to have a successful pregnancy out of this. I do firmly believe that the depo has everything to do with my problem. Only one pregnancy was found to have a chromosome abnormality. Pleas don't do it.
