  • With any type of contraceptive that is used for pro-long usage it can take several months if not up to a year to get pregnant. I had a family member who was on the shot for three years they told her it can take just as long if not longer for the drug to fully clear her system and allow her to get pregnant. They also recommend that you stop the contraceptive and allow your body a month or two to cleanse itself for a safer pregnancy. Don't give up hope it will happen it's just going to take a lot of determination and attempts. I'd suggest for just some reinforcement talk to your doctor see if they can run a test on you to help find out when you're the most fertile.
