Conception after depo provera

After trying to figure out what is wrong with me and after years of trying to concieve I think I found my problem. Depo provera, I was on the shot for a year after my son was born after that point hubby and I tried for 2 years to concieve. According to my research it can take anywhere from a month to 2 years plus to return your body back to normal.

Anyone else having issues concieving after depo  provera?

I've had issues in the past trying to conceive after that horrible stuff. I was on it for almost 2 years... and it took almost another 2 years off of it to start ovulating again. Luckily my GYN suggested I try an herb called Chasteberry (Vitex) and after a little over a month I started to ovulate and became pregnant with DD. I used a tincture form from a local herb shop (little stronger then the pills online) and it seemed to do the trick. You could try something like that... or I've also heard of women using a different form of BC for a few months to get their body on cycle again, and then getting off the BC to conceive. I would talk to your doctor and see what they suggest... and try charting or OPKs to see if you're even ovulating (I was having a "normal" cycle for months and didn't know that I wasn't ovulating). Good luck!

It took me a year and I had no idea that it was why I was having trouble conceiving until I found out I was micarrying and my doctor told me that depo was probably why it took so long to conceive.

I took it for a year, about 18 months later we began to TTC..... 4 years later and the help of fertility drugs we finally conceived. They never found anything wrong with either one of us... Good Luck Mama!!
