  • When I was on the depo after i got off I didn't have a period for a few months. I think it stays in your system like 3 months but then it takes alittle while after that to get back to normal. A year after I got off of it I got pregnant.

  • I also just stopped using Depo in hopes of ttc. I didn't know how long it would take us until after I quit using it. It's only been about a month, but still no AF. I've read a lot about taking Black Cohosh and Vitex (Chaste tree berry) to help get AF back and regulate AF.
    I've read that it different for each woman after Depo. Some women get pg within a few months of coming off and some women don't get pg for a couple of years.
    Try doing a google search of "ttc after depo"- that should give you some more information on what you can do.
    Good luck!
