  • Everyone is different of course; however, there have been some reports of delayed fertility after being on Depo Provera. If you think that you are having trouble conceiving you need to make an appt. with your OB. He or she will ask when you went off Depo and what your periods were like before you went on. Have you been actively trying for at least 6 months? Have you tried using the ovulation detectors sold OTC at local pharmacies? Your OB can give you better info than this site about this topic. He or she can also test your hormone levels and recommend treatment options if necessary.
