  • I'm having girl #4...apparently the trick is to have eggs that repel male

    As for the depo...It's normal to have wacky periods after stopping it. I had the same issue...went on one round of oral BCP and got pregnant the month after! I needed them to help regulate my cycle. I would speak to your OB/GYN about it. GL! I hope you're blessed with another baby soon!

  • After I stopped depo I didn't get another period until 5 months after my last shot. I only bled 2 days....Literally 2weeks later I got pregnant. :)

    So after stopping depo everyone is different. I would say while you have stopped drink a lot of water, your body is going to want to cleanse itself of all of the hormonal components associated with depo before pregnancy. I even did a cleanse when I was done honestly. But it's just a hippy thing I am suggesting, it's not necessary.

    Also don't be discouraged if you don't get preg right away like me, the average woman takes 18months to get pregnant after the depo shot, so it all depends on your body.

    Tricks to having a girl...? If you go by the chinese calendar that could help. But remember the Chinese go by your actual date of birth as year one so add a year to your age and remember conception is usually 2weeks after a period...good luck

  • didn't have a period for a year after and it took 5 years to get prego, it depends on how long you were on. I was on for about 10 years.

    they say its like 6 months for every year on it?
