  • Actually it depends on the length of your cycle, not the length of your period. You're usually most fertile right in the middle of your cycle, even though that might vary slightly.

  • You ovulate 12-16 days BEFORE day 1 of your period. The time between your period and ovulation can vary upon stress level.

    The LENGTH of your period means NOTHING. the length of your cycle (day 1 of period to day 1 of period) will tell you if you are ovulating. If it is normally the same amount of days in between, then you are ovulating regularly. Now since you just got off of the shot, your doc should have told you that it can take up to 1 year for your body to regulate out (regardless that all of the hormones from the shot are out of your system).

  • He told me i may ovulate one month it may be regular or i may skip a month of ovulation every persons body is different.. im not gonna stress it to much bc when i was pregnant before i didnt think much of it when i got pregnant and now its just fustrating hearing all these discouraging storys about ppl who have been on depo for so long and cant conceive and thats why i got off right after my 2nd shot... but then i was a little happier when 3 of my friends told me that before they had there children they were on depo and right after they got off they got pregnant... so im just thinking everybodys body is different ... i think im just gonna have sex every week then "LOL" if that makes the situation any better... and ill buy ovulation test my menstrual cycle before depo was 28 days long so we will find out what its like now... wish me luck and BABY DUST! :-)

  • every bodies body differs, there is not exact time that everyone ovulates.

    while the average is right in between periods you could ovulate while on your period.
