How long could it take for me to get pregnant if on depo-prova

i am on the depo prova shot. I received the 1st shot july 2, 2009, its a three month dose so i will be due to get another one october 2nd, 2009. I wont be getting the 2nd shot, I have my period every month, even though im on the shot, and sometimes i have it more than once. My periods last anywhere between 1 week and 1 1/2 weeks. how long could it possibly take to get pregnant? Thanks everyone. And please, im not asking for a rude comment,

  • it depends. some people can get pregnant right after they get off of it, others have to wait a while. my friend was on it and had to wait a year until she could get pregnant. good luck!

  • Everyone's body is different. But you can speed along the detox process! Eating a lot of raw foods, leafy greens, spinach, kale, oranges, and plant foods will help clean you out a little faster. Plus, it'll be good for the baby and your health! Red clover flower tea is a great detox. But if you suspect your are pregnant do NOT detox.
