  • I was on depo and got pregnant right after stopping it. It's different for all women, some never get pregnant again, some take a while, some do right away, some get pregnant on b/c. You had a foreign thing in your body, of course your uterus is going to balk at anything trying to implant itself on the wall. GL.

  • I don't know why it would take that long, you are supposed to be able to get preg. anytime after getting an IUD removed. In fact i had to have my IUD removed because i am pregnant and became preg. with my IUD in.
