Best Ways to Get Pregnant After Depo

Did you use Depo Provera as contraception but now want to get pregnant? Find out the best ways to get pregnant after Depo.

Depo Provera can be a great contraceptive choice for many women. It allows them to not have to think about contraception on a daily basis, and makes it easy for them to go on about their daily lives without the worry of birth control weighing on their mind. However, many women worry about getting pregnant after depo and wonder if they will have a hard time and if there is anything they can do to increase their chances.

It may take up to a year

One important thing to remember is that it can take a long time for Depo Provera to get out of your system. The average time that it takes for Depo to get out of your system is 12 months, and sometimes longer. It does take the body a long time to return to normal after Depo Provera shots, and it takes a long time for the Depo to get out of your system. There is really no way to “rush” the Depo out of your system, and no way to make it happen faster. You just have to give your body enough time to let it happen naturally.

Know your body

Since there is only a small window of time when you can get pregnant each month anyway, it might be helpful for you to learn how to track your ovulation or chart your cycles. This can be helpful in helping you know exactly when you need to have sex in order to get pregnant. There are many websites out there dedicated to help you learn how to track your cycles, and a ton of over the counter ovulation prediction kits available as well.

Talk with your doctor

Talking with your doctor is also a good idea if you are trying to get pregnant after your Depo shots stop. You might be able to have your hormone levels checked to see how they are. Doctors are also a valuable resource in telling you about their experiences and may be a great advocate for helping you in your journey to getting pregnant.

    I have been on the shot for a year an in that year I kept bleeding an having discard the brown stuff that you get after ur period ends. In August of 2015 I ended the shot. An from that time on until now I am still discarding the brown stuff.. My fiancee an I have had our moments but we weren’t using any protection. We wanted a family. So my problem is can I still get pregnant from the time I was supposed to get my shot until now which is October 2015

    I know its none of my business but have you tried like 1-2 weeks after ur monthly course. It helps if you don’t use any liquid down in that part of it body..

    I had my last shot a year and 20 days ago and still am not ovulating. I also didn’t get my period for six months. Therefore you seem to be moving the shot quickly out of your system. Even though your body is trying to regulate again, I wouldn’t get my hopes up until a year after you were supposed to go back. Good luck though!!!!!! :)

    I’ve been off depo for over a year and haven’t had a steady month to month cycle and me and my husband are trying to have a baby now. My doctor recommend taking birth control pills to get my cycle back regular. Is this a good idea for helping us conceive? Is there any other options?

    I was only administered 1 shot back in August of 2015, I never went back to get another shot because the side effects were too crucial. In sept and oct I bled for those 2 months. I finally stopped in the beginning/middle of November and had sex. It is now December and no normal period yet, but I am spotting a light brown/pink and my breasts are sore to the touch. Could I possibly be pregnant ?

    I have only taken the shot once back in October. I’m due for another one between Jan and Feb but, I decided not to take it anymore. The last time I only took one shot, I had my period exactly 3 months after that one shot. I guess what I’m trying to ask is, wouldn’t it be possible for me to get pregnant after one shot? My body apparently recovers immediately after one shot. I feel like I have been having early signs of pregnancy lately too.

    Hi. I have been on the he depo shot for 4 years but I am still getting my monthly period. I was wondering could this be because the effectiveness is wearing off. And when I talked to my doctor she said it could take between 3 to 4 months before I can get pregnant. Is that true because I got my last depo shot on October 14th and I had my period about a week after I got it and every month since then. And I have been sexually active so I dont know whats goimg on. I need some advice or helpful information

    Hi,
    I have been using Depo for 9 months, the last injection was at May 2015. Until June 2015 I had regular periods, from July 2015, first i have spotting for tree months constantly, and after that with another hormonal therapy the spotting stooped. Since October 2015 i don’t have regular periods. But my hormones level are normal. And i am trying to get pregnant. What else should i check? Is it any way to find out if the last Depo injection is still working in my body?
