  • Nope, and you don't want to. Depo really messes up your fertility. I've known quite a few women who've gotten pregnant after depo, each taking at least 1 year or longer to get pregnant afterwards, and every single woman I know who got pregnant after depo suffered a miscarriage with the first pregnancy after depo. I'm surprised that crap is still on the market.

  • I'm not familiar with the depo but if you are trying to get pregnant my doctor one time told me that when you are having sex to try to put a pillow behind you so you will raise yourself. He also told me that after sex not to get up, because most of us tend to get up right away. So just lay there for at least 1 hr. Best wishes. Oh, my grandma also says taking garlic every morning helps your uterus with something not sure what, but you can Google it and find out.

  • thanks for all of your help i wish you all who are trying the best of luck and let me know if something changes. trying is always fun but when you have a nursery ready and a husband dying for a baby not to mention me feeling the same it does make it a little more stressful. almost like pressure to fill the beautiful crib we have all ready for a baby. take it no one has heard of wishing yourself pregnant lol
