  • If you only started it in Dec 2008 it should only be a few months maybe. I know depo screws with your period but since you didnt take it more than once then your chances are good that it 'll be out of your system soon.

  • I had taken depo for 2 years, decided to get off b/c I was told it would take about a year to get pregnant. We planned according to that, I took my last shot in February, found out in September that I was 6 weeks pregnant.
