  • theres always ovulation test you can get at the store, or you can do basal body temps, and when your temp its higher then normal your ovulating. Its best to check 1st thing in the morning

  • It can take awhile for the shot to get out of your system and for your period and ovulation to become regular again. It can take up to 18 months after stopping the shot to become fertile again, so dont be too disappointed if you dont get pregnant quickly. Give yourself time to get back to normal. I know this is not what you want to hear but I dont want you to be upset each month, now the 18 month thing might not be you bc you have been on it for a short period of time but just in case, you know that it can take that long.

  • Took me a full year to get pregnant after I went off the Depo shot I will never use it again!
