Defferent women have different experiences. Some women come off it and get pregnant immediately, others take months for it to work itself out of their system. Some women end up having to take birth control for a few months to regulate their cycles just so they can actually ry to get pregnant. It varies. Personally, I have never, and will never take it.

I got pregnant with my four year old two months after stopping the pill. I just stopped depo, and I'm pretty sure I have a long road ahead of me:-(

After I got of depo it took me 12 cycles, including a chemical on cycle 11, before I got pregnant with my 8 month old son. It can take a long time to get out of your system :(

I was on the pill for 8.5 years. I have been off it for 22 months now, and it took 8 cycles and an herb called Vitex to finally get regular. However, my cycles were irregular before I went on it, and I have endometriosis. So my experience may not be yours... some women have no problems conceiving coming off bc pills, and some women even take a month of bc to kind of "kick start" their fertility. I guess it works for some. I hope you're one of those. Good luck!

I, personally, got pregnant the month after stopping the pill with both my oldest and youngest (I don't remember with my middle). I am a pretty Fertile Mertyl, though.

My 2 children were conceived the first cycle off birth control pills, but we have been trying for #3 for over 4 years. Good luck!

It took 2 1/2 years after Depo and 3 years after the Mirena. I will NEVER use BC again.
