  • i went to the doc today for the second time..(to have a sonogram done just to make sure there was nothing crazy going on) but she explained to me that it can take up to 9 months the time you were supossed to recieve your last shot to even start ovulating and even then it may not be regular. She did say that some do it sooner and some even do right away but it could take that long and if i dont start my period in the next 6 months (because its already been 3 months for me) that i should come in and they will give me a shot to help me get it going...but she said that i should try to let it start on its own first....so i'm hoping it will be soon!!!!
