How long does it take to get pregnant after being on the Depo shot for 4yrs?

I've read in many places that it can take anywhere from 6-18mths to get pregnant after being on the Depo shot. I'm sorta looking for anyone's own, personal experience with it. The doctor did sound positive that it shouldn't take long since I was getting my period right before my next booster was due (basically every 3mths). I've been off the shot since February (that's when it was due next), but we haven't had much luck yet. Starting to stress, even though we just started.
