How long after DEPO did it take you to get pregnant?

I have been off of depo for about 8 months now and was on it for 7 years. I was just wondering how long it has taken others to get pregnant after coming off of it...

  • so something is wrong with me then? I have been to the gyno but he just keeps telling me that he doesnt want me to get pregnant. That the world has enough babies...WTH? But everything seems to be working fine he says, so I dont know what it is.

  • It can take 6-18 months to become fertile again. Even longer if you have been using it for a long time. My doc told me to only use it for 1 year if I plan on having more kids because there is a chance with long term use it can make you totally infertile .

  • Thanks everyone. I see that the results are scattered, this is going to be harder than I though. I am just going to hold on to hope. Thanks again
