Need to get Pregnant ASAP after Depo

I have been on depo for the past 3 years. My husband is going on active duty in August. My next shot is due on June 22. We would like to get pregnant before he leaves, but from what i have read in the postings it seems like that will be impossible.
My last shot was taken late and before that I had not had a period the entire time I have been taking depo, now I have been having a period every few weeks. I am also cramping pretty bad. I am hoping that my period will continue after the shot so that I will hopfully ovulate.
I have not gained any weight while on depo. Is there any way that I  might be able to quickly get it out of my system. Are there any natural herbs or ANY way that I may be able to regulate my period or even increase my chances of ovulation. This means so much to us, so I will appreciate any help that I can get.

I don't know if I can answer your question or not.  I'm a NNP (neonatal nurse practitioner).  
I can tell you that there is nothing you can do to hurry the depo out of your system, though.  If it is imperative that you get pregnant right away, make an appt to talk with your OB/GYN and see he might give you Clomid.  I doubt it, but due to the circumstance it's worth asking at the least.  You should also see your doctor before you try to conceive anyway so this would be a good thing to do.

I'm trying to conceive my second child.  My first has Aspergers and is fairly disabled.  GL to all of us! This is an amazing website.  If anyone has questions about neonatal issues i'll be glad to help answer.

I have a question, what's the difference between the women forum and the maternity one?  Is this for more general stuff?

Depo usually stays in your system 12-18 months.  Some people immediately get pregnant after depo. Have your Dr check your hormone levels and see if they are high.  I had to take Provera to jumpstart my periods in Dec05 and Jan06.  And I now am 18 weeks pregnant.  I was on 2 shots of Depo in 04 and then went straight to BCP until Aug 05, in order to regulate my periods from being on Depo.  A healthy couple takes about a year to conceive, the chances each month are around 25%.  The only thing I can think that you could take to get pregnant is provera to induce a period and then a round of clomid.  But that dont promise you will be pregnant that cycle.  Best of Luck!

First, I would like to thank everyone for their advice. I made an appointment with my OB/GYN for Thursday, so I hope that I can get some good news. I am praying that I have the same luck and get pregnant with no period, that would be the miracle that we need right now. Thank you all. If anyone finds out anything else, please let me know.

I was on Depo Provera for 8 years.  My last shot was in May 2006.   I had very little spotting in Dec.07.  Then nothing.  I want to OB/GYN in Feb.  He put me on provera 3 times and I had no period.  So in May we tried birth control for 3 months to see what it would do.  Thankfully after my first pack of 21 pills I had a very small period, but atleast something!  Second month same thing.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed this month.  My question...has anyone been in the same boat before...and did you get pregnant?  My husband and I are trying not to get to worked up but it's very hard.  To everyone out there trying to get pregnant your in my thoughts and prayers...Good luck!!

I have been on the depo for 6 years, and did not have 1 period the whole time i was on it.  I was due a shot in Jan 08 but did not have it as i am 27 and now would love to have a baby.  

I cant wait to have a period so that i now my body is ok and back to normal.  The doctor suggested i take Evening primrose Oil and Vitamin B6, but after some research i also take iron, Vitamin E, folic acid, flax oil, & omega 3.

As well as all that i am taking a herb in drop form called fetility XX which is ment to be some miracle herb.. but nothing as yet.. its so hard not to get depressed about it, but i guess its likely it will take another year and half before my body gets rid of the depo.

My prayers are with anyone desperate for a child also.. XXX

I was on the shot for a loong time and I went from that to the pill to regulate my cycle to get pregnant with my daughter (9 years ago).  It took us about 6 months after almost 3 years on the shot and 2 months on the pill but I've known women who've gotten pregnant right away off the shot.  Good luck!

I was on the depo shot for 8 years and my body was having very odd pains and it was due to the depo shot thinning out my ovarian wall causing all kinds of pain so immediately i didn't go back for my due shot in August 2011.  My Dr. then put me on a pill called mono neppa to help regulate my periods and give it a jump start to regulating. My periods have returned completely but there has been no luck in ttc. We've been reading everything including positions, vitamins and nothing has worked yet being its May 2012. i also understand my Dr won't issue me clomid until I've been off of the shot for 12-18 months but you would think that regular periods would be a good sign that my body is ready to conceive but there hasn't been any luck. Need any help or advice that will benefit. Im 23 and in a good point in my life to carry on such a responsibility and looking for advice from any women who can give me any insight on what i can do or maybe even... what i could be doing wrong !?!

Hello,
  To all my fellow ladies out there who are still finding them selves of my old situation,my name is CLARA THOMPSON and i am here to tell you all about my life this is my  testimony and the great experience i have had with life, i was married for good 15years with no issue(child) i was so worried my husband was getting furious i never blamed him because he was very patient with me since all this years,i needed help so bad i went to different hospitals to see what was wrong with my womb and why i cant give birth to my own baby.the doctors always confirm that i dont have a problem,it hurts me deep when ever i see my friends breast feeding their own babies and also inviting me for their baby shower and naming ceremonies.i had no option i always attended hoping that one day i will blessed with my own child.my life was turned upside down i was ashamed of my self my mother inlaw was putting pressure on my husband to get another wife my husband declined because he truely loves me and wanted me to be the mother of his children,i needed help and had no where else to turn to.till a very good day when i was browsing through the internet i read about a spell caster that helps people to get their lover back win their money back,i never saw anything referring to the help of childlessness i just had to try this great spell caster,i contacted the spell and told him about my problem and he told  me that my problem is very easy for him to handle i was shocked and thought maybe he is just trying to take advantage of my present situation,i gave it a thought and finally concluded on giving it a try.i did all the spell caster required and he told me to go and make love with my husband.this happend in june 12-2012 and i got pregnant i was so happy and this year february 22 -2013 i got my first baby girl (DISNEY) i was very thankful to this great spell caster for the great help he has rendered and for coming to my rescue when everything i had turned against me now i have my life back and my husband is so happy with me and he is telling me about having a another child for him as soon as possible.i want to use this medium or opportunity  to tell all my fellow ladies who are going through my previous situation that all hope is not lost if you need the help of this great spell caster you can contact him via email ***@**** you might just be the next to give your own testimony.

I think you should see a doctor about it, because not having a period for such a long time could be due to many things like PCOS .
