TTC and the Depo shot

We want to TTC and I just got off the Depo shot. I heard it takes at least 6 months to become pregnant after being on it. Is this true? Anyone get pregnant sooner?

Took me less than 2 months after skipping the next shot. We weren't trying either.

Took me just shy of two years, and I was only on it for a year. How long were you on it. Its longer for the amount of time that you were one it.

I only got one dosage of it. So for only 3 months. I was Supposed to go August 23 to re-new but we chose not to so we can TTC . With our DS the day we decided to get prego we did. I know it's not going to be that easy this time but I hope it is easy.lol. I don't have time to be having sex all the time haha

I got the depo shot on January 27th of this year...  Found out I was pregnant the last week in April and obviously didn't go for my next one :-)  Everyone is different :-)  Good luck!
