How Long To Get Pregnant After Depo

Chelsea - June 30

I have been on depo for amost 4 1/2 yrs. Now that I am married, I really want a baby. My husband said to wait until we are more stable. We recently agreed that I will not get my shot when I am due in August 05. However, I have heard so many stories about not being able to conceive after depo. From what I see, the longer you take it, the longer it takes to become pregnant. This motherly urge of mine becomes stronger by the day and I a becoming depressed over this. Is there any way to shorten the wait after this poison leaves my body????

From what I know taking the pre natel vitamins every day and taking care of yourself (diet) and exersize and also go to the obgyn and see if they will give you the fertility pill. Ths is what I am doing and really it is the only thing you can do and pray for a baby.

I talked to my doctor about how long it takes to get pregnant and she said it should only be 1 month. I took the depo shot for 10 years and now I am trying to get pregnant. I have been off of it for 3 weeks after the day it was due.
