  • I was on the depo for 3 years and when I stopped I got my period within like 6 months after that, so it might take a year to get fully back on track but yes you will be able to have another baby

  • The depo shot lasts for 3 months. After you get off the shot it may take a while for your period to come back on. For me it was 2 months after my last shot. Its funny how when we dont want to get pregnant we get on birth control and when we want to it takes forever to the birth control to get out of our system.

  • My friend was on the depo for over 10 years. She was told by her OB/GYN that she had to wait about 12-18 months before she started to try to conceive a child. She was told that was the normal waiting period for people coming off depo - whether they are on it for a short amount of time or a long period of time.

    Good luck!
