I hear ya...I was on depo for a while, but went on pills and stopped them to ttc.  Thankfully, I haven't had but one loooonnngg cycle since I've been off, but after 9 months, still getting BFNs...

Hopefully your time will come soon...at least get AF, so you can start fresh!  GL!!

 Yeah, depo really messed me up too...I will never be on that again!  took a year and a half to get my son after stopping the shot.

I am so sorry mama! My doc wanted to put me on that once and I refused. i've never heard anything good about it. my bestie got it and is now having huge problems from it with her AF. I wish you tons of luck and a BFP!

I am with you! My last depo was in August 2008. I had been on it for over a year and it had completely messed up my system. After consulting my midwife (after blowing through 3 doctors in 4 months, numerous blood tests and 2 BCP prescriptions), we stopped all BC. It took another 3 months to get my first period (I needed the break actually as I had been bleeding almost constantly since starting the depo shots). It was another 2 months before my cycle got, mostly, back on track (that was August 2009 - we've been TTC since then and still nothing. Our last child only took us 2 months to conceive). At least now I am fairly regular but my cycle varies from 23-35 days. I hate that shot. It should be taken off the market.

 Thanks ladies!  It just sucks bc the first few cycles after the depo were pretty normal lengths.  Then the last two have been 40 days, and 49 and counting.....I dont understand why it just didnt happen from the get go instead of 5 and 6 months later.....ugh

I'll keep on truckin though! hehe

 see I can NEVER get a positive on an OPK....thats what makes me question if I'm ovulating or not.  Especially now with the two real long cycles.....grrr

Thanks for the support!

Quoting daymommy:

Oh me too! I got one shot, just one, almost 9 months ago. I even still had my period during the 3 months after I got it. Then decided not to get another, and I've only gotten two periods. The last one was only cause I did a month of bc pills to get it started. I don't know whether to continue that or not. I stopped taking them after the first month cause they made me feel sick. Now I'm back on CD 37 with no sign of AF. It's so confusing, I can't even trust OPK's cause I will get positives, but I don't think I ever actually ovulate. So it's like how do you even track your cycle like that. I feel your frustration!

Sorry....  :-(

Maybe try some acupuncture or Vitex to help you regulate?

 that may be what messed me up trew....I was taking Vitex and had stopped recently...I just hate to think my body has to depend on something on the outside to get back to normal....dang I'm stubborn! LOL Guess I should try it again!
