Conceiving

I got off the Depo a year ago and still have not become pregnant. Is anyone having or had this problem?

  • I had this problem myself...It took about 18 months after I got off the shot before I got pregnant. So keep trying! That's the fun part anyway :-)...My OB/GYN said that the hormones in the shot can last long after the last dose was administered, and it's different for every woman. If you still are worried, check with him/her!

  • i am!
    i had the merina and i had it removed march 17th of last year and started trying right away.
    we still havent had any luck.
    and its been over a year!
    ppl say it takes about a year to try but in mycase way longer it sucks.
    but they say dont think about it and itll happen

  • I highly recommend reading the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility. I think you can get a used copy for around $5 shipped on Amazon.

  • I'm with dedicatedrider.

    That is an excellent book. It will tell you how to know that you are ovulating and how to track when you are most fertile.

  • dedicatedrier is a CafeMom name like yours is 2prettylittle1s. I heard lots of good stuff about Taking Charge Of Your Fertility. Did you have any problems before you started on Depo? If you did, they might return now that you're off of it.
