  • the shot does take up to year to get pregnant but some women are lucky and get pregnant soon after. the depo does cause infertility problems and i am in that group. just found out today and i have polycistic ovary syndrome. so yea i am bummed out but its not the end. SORRY needed to vent a little. back to your question with some women it just depends it may take a month or it may take yrs it just depends on how ur body works. GOOD LUCK
