  • Really depends on your body. I was not on depo but I was on another form of BC for 8 months, we decided to try for another and I got pregnant apparently with in the week after stopping my BC.

  • We tried for five years after depo and then finally went to see a specialist. He told me that the depo made me infertile. We had to go through fertility treatments to get pregnant.
