Hi All, Can anyone share their knowledge or experience with me please.
I came off the depo in August last year and I am really pleased to say my periods have returned, albeit 2 weeks and counting but I guess this is to be expected as I was on the depo for over 12 years and to be honest I am really pleased how quickly things returned to normal. However, my question is does this necessarily mean I can now get pregnant? I thought having my periods back would mean everything is ok down there.
Also, I gained some weight whilst on the depo and was wondering if anyone knows if this weight will now slowly disappear...heres hoping eh!!
i took depo for 4yrs and honestly i wished i had not!! there are all bad things all over the interenet about this b/c and not good either. If you already have ur period bk that is good the sooner the better it took me 7 months to get mine bk. since u do have ur period there is always a chance u can get prego but i read w/depo it stops ur ovulation period all together and it must be true because i have been TTC for 4yrs since i quit taking it and im still not prego!! if u took it for that long and really want a baby now i would suggest u star trying the OPK's and u dont get a + then i would suggest u taking vitex it will make u start ovulating again. Remember every1 is different though and has different reaction my sister in law get prego after 1 yr of stop taking depo but she only had 4 shots too. GL and baby dust to us all!!
I was on depo for 4 years and it was a big mistake here too! I was off of it for 7 years and still had irregular cycle and I started taking metformin and they returned. I agree with tanker chic... doing the temping is the best way to know if you ovulate... I've been doing it for over a year and it helps me even determine when AF is coming. Temping is even more accurate then the fertility monitor that I bought. Good Luck!
