WOW! yall are lucky then! I was on depo on and off for 4yrs off for exactly 8 yrs with no birth control in between when I found out I was pg!! I was TTC for 10 yrs i thought i was sterile! But there s no proof it was depo could have been my X husband's fault but yeah it took me a long time i just had my baby a week ago!

Thank you all for your posts! Means a great deal to me:) I was on depo for 3 years and have now been off for 20 months....my periods are still not regular, will have it for a few months then not have it for 2 months! Agh it is so annoying:/ My husband and I have not used protection at all since I have been off of depo and still no baby.
