I was on the depo shot for 2 years. Now, my husband and I would like to get pregnant. My Dr put me on the pill the last time I was to have a shot, to try to regulate me. I only took it that one month. I have read that some people have trouble getting pregnant after depo, and would like to hear some feedback. Hopefully encouraging news....

i read up on how long it takes to get pregnant after being on the depo. It read that it doesn't matter how long you were on it that it can take anywhere from 6months to 18months from the date of the last shot you took before you can get pregnant it varries from one woman to another. i was on it for 6 months and it took 6 months for me to get a period again and it took me 18 months before i got pregnant. Good Luck hope it don't take as long for you as it did for me

What is a depo?

My last shot was April 03 and I still have not gotten pregnant. I am at the 18 month mark and I just pray it will be soon. Good luck to eveyone, tell as many people as you can how bad that shot is for our bodies.

I went off the depo shot in October 2003. I never got my period back, but I got pregnant the first week in March 2004.

I had my last shot in June '04. & I am 7 week pregnant not (Jan '05). So, it only took my about 3 months after the shot wore off. If you've gotten your period back, I wouldn't worry about it.

I've been on Depo since 1998. I became pregnant in 2001 while I was still using Depo!! (I tested my luck and got my shot a few days late). My shot is due on the 20th of Jan. I'm not going to get it!! I believe that every woman's body has it's own way of working it's beautiful magic. Some just take a little longer than others. When I read about how long it has taken other women to get pregnant, I am a little nervous. Now.. I want to get pregnant. Wish me I pray and wish all of you luck and a safe journey. God Bless you all.

Wow! I am really grateful for the responses. It is very encouraging after reading many like the ones that it has taken years to conceive after depo. Good luck Taineel, I hope everything works out as well for you this time as before. Lani, from everything I have read, you are ok. Just be sure to go in for another shot when it is due, or use some other form of bc if you are not wanting to get pregnant.

I was on depo for about 5 years and I have been off of it for almost 3 yrs now. If any woman is on this get off of it NOW!!!! I have been taking fertility drugs for the last year just to have a period. This shot sucks everything out of you and there is no answer why.

How long does it take to get pregnant after taking the depo shot?


Alisha - February 4

I was on Depo for 3 shots. My last was June '04. When I was on Depo I never lost my periods but instead there were a couple of months when my period lasted the whole month. My husband and I decided that I we wanted to get pregnant... here we are in January '05 5 months after I should have gotten another shot and we are still not pregnant. I'm starting to get worried. I know it can take awhile but my other 2 pregnancies(with a former husband) happened so easily that not getting pregnant is hard for me. I'm not getting any younger and that tick-tock of the biological clock increases my worries even more. I just wanted to say this and sympathize with all the women out there that are having trouble conceiving weither or not you have been on Depo.


monica - February 4

My last shot was July 04, I was due for my shot in October but decided not to for so many reason ( all the side affects). I have had heavy bleeding and spotting during my 4 years on the shot. in October I started bleeding, I have had heaving bleeding and gotten my period twice in one month. I have bleed for 2 weeks. Oct, Nov and Dec were the worst 3 month with all the bleeding. I finally got a regular period in January, I was due to get my period agin February 3 and it not here. I dont know if I should do a pregnancy test since I was on the shot for 4 years and according to everything I read it takes a long time to get pregnant. should I just wait a couple more days? I keep thinking that it will take a while before I get pregnant. I just dont want to get to excited and then be disappointed.
