After your last shot it can take up to 6 months for the drug to leave your body. It takes 6-18 months for most women for fertility to return. The median time is 10 months for fertility to return but it can take SOME women up to 24 months.

Have you been getting regular periods?

if so you need to start using Ovulation Predictor Kits or OPK's to see if and when you are ovulating. Try the ones with the smily faces since they are easy to read.

I was on depo for 3 years, and got my first period right after being off the shot. HOWEVER my doctor was shocked and told me that it was rare to do that, and told me I was probably very fertile... he was right. my first son was conceived when hubby didn't pull out only 1 time, and this time we only tried for 2 months to conceive before I got pregnant.

Im a little confused myself. I think I'm pregnant, all the signs are there. I was also on Depo, I took the shot once. I was suppose to go back May 19, 09 to get another shot but I didn't since I got my period on the 4th of May. My last regular period was on June 30th..today is August 20th and still no period in site. On August 25, I will be officially 2 months late!! I've taken 3 preggo test and all three came out negative. Im not skinny @ all, so maybe my weight is throwing off my test. Plus, its hard for me to tell if my tummy is growing or not since my tummy already had a little extra to it. So I don't know how to tell from looking either.
