  • I've never had depo but I know plenty of women have - your cycles take a long time to normalize after depo, it really messes up your fertility. I would strongly recommend waiting to try for another baby until 2 years after your last shot, every single woman I know who has had the depo shot (7 friends/coworkers) have gotten pregnant after a year or so of trying, but miscarried. I'm surprised the shot is still on the market with all the major problems it causes, like 30-40 pound weight gain.
