Infertility after depo shot
I was just wondering if anyone has experienced trouble tryin to get pregnant after being on depo. I was on it for 3 years, now I am off it for about 1. I have only had about 2 regular periods since, and I was wondering how long it took for anyone else to succeed. Thanks.

Hello.  I was on the depo shot for 1 year.  I got pregnant the first time 4 years after stopping it, but it ended in a m/c.  I am 7 weeks pregnant now with femara/IUI after being off of depo for 6 years.  I would advise you to see a RE right away, because I feel like we wasted alot of time with regular OB/GYN's.  I have been with the RE for about 9 months.  I feel like he made all the difference.  Good luck to you!  If you'd like more info on what all I tried, feel free to contact me at stephielbrown at yahoo.com.

I did not start having regular periods until seeing my RE early this year.

i have been on the deppo for 7 years it took just over a year for me to have my first period this week yay . im hoping all goes well with the baby making ...  i know it can take a long time to come off im just gratefull i dicided my self that i wanted children last year and knowing it would take a long time for me to be fertile again any way, came off it .. now at the point where my partner and i have discussed things and want to try to have a baby the very same day almost i had my first period im thinking this must be a sign if nothing else is
