Ladies hope this helps, This is right out of the Depo booklet: Based on the results from a large study done in the United States, of those women who stop using Depo in order to become prenant, about half of those who become pregnant do so in about 10 months after their last injection; about two-thirds of those who become pregnant do so in about 12 months, and about 83% of those who become pregnant do so in about 15 months, and about 93% of those who become pregnant do so in about 18 months after thir last injection. The length of time you use depo has no affect on how long it takes you to become pregnant after you stop using it.

I don't have an answer but a question if someone can help. I want to get pregnant and I am just getting off the shot is something i can do to speed this along. Like a pill or something?

Is it very likely to get pregnent three weeks after you have your period?

i was on the shot for 11years and i was still on it when they told me that i was pregnant that was in april of this year i was already 13wks and i had no idea now i am 37wks and counting down my baby is a little small for her fetal age but im not worrying about that to much as long as she is healthy.. I do belive that everyone taking this shot should get off i really think that our problems are gong to get worse as we get older.. i just hope that you are able to get pregnant ginger good luck to all of you

I have another question? I'm on a Anti depression pill and on the depo shot. Can the pill interrupt the depo?

i was on the depo shot for 8 years. i was told by me Dr. that when i was ready to have a baby all i would have to do was stop taking the shot. NOT TRUE!!! i have been try for 14 months and still no baby. my new Dr. told me that i may never have kids because of the shot. so if you know any one on the depo shot tell them to get off of it. best of luck getting pregnant sonya

Hi I was also on Depo for about 3 years, and it took my husband and I about 8 months to get pregnant. My doctor told us to not be surprised if it took at least a year because we had to get my body first of all to ovulate again, but also to get itself on a cycle. Hope this helps.

M- You say it took you 8 months to get pregnant. You mean 8 months from the last shot you had or 8 months from when your next shot was due? Thanks.

I think I'm the exception. I actually got pregnant a few days after my Depo shot was due. I've been on the Depo shot for three years. It was due August 24th and in mid September I found out I was pregnant.
