Is it possible?

I stop taking the depo shot in March and my husband and I want to have another baby can I or do have a while for it to clear out of my system? I figured it would be by now but I haven't had any positive tests. Does anyone know how long it take to clear out?

  • It took me a little over a year and a half to get pregnant after stopping Depo. I took three injections (9 months)

  • I've known a lot of people to get pregnant right off the depo, but some ladies who are still trying after months and months. Once your period starts coming back normally you shouldnt have a problem. Try looking online for an ovulation calendar and plan the days. Good luck and baby dust to you!!!

  • I never did the depo shot, but I had a friend who got pregnant while on the depo shot. Everyone is different.

  • I know some one who was on it for 13-14yrs and only took like a few months to get pregnant, which she wasn't trying to. She just was having problems with the depo and it was making her feel pregnant all the time and tired
