How Long to Get Pregnant After Depo

Did you take the Depo-Provera birth control injectable? How long does it take to get pregnant after Depo?

It is many people’s dream to have a family and an overall happy family and life. Many feel that by having a successful career, a happy marriage and a beautiful baby then you will be able to have the perfect life. Though now it seems as if there are many ways to go about this process exactly how you want to. Though if you’ve previously been on chemical birth control such as Depo-Provera and then stopped them because you want to become pregnant, you may not know how long it will take before you will actually get pregnant.

It may take time

Many women who have been on Depo shots in the past and stopped because they wanted to start a family, have said that they usually get pregnant within a year of stopping. Though the results may vary, different people have varied reactions and side effects of stopping a birth control regimen that they have been on for a while. It has been said that however long that you were getting the shot may inevitably have something to do with how long it will take you before you become pregnant.

Affects each woman differently

This particular birth control shot affects different women in varied ways. Some of them don’t have a period at all while taking this pill, and others may have a very light one. It all depends upon that particular woman’s body. Though some women have even reported becoming pregnant after just missing one Depo shot. These things work differently from woman to woman. I know in my case, I had been taking Depo for the better part of 5-6 years and seldom had a cycle at all. So it should have taken upwards of 4-12 months to get pregnant, which of course we had no idea. But we got incredibly lucky and got pregnant after only 1-2 cycles. But for the majority of women, I believe that the opposite is true and it may take longer than you expect.

How long did you take Depo?

It seems as if the longer you’ve been taking the Depo shot, the longer it will take for you to get your period after you’ve stopped. Though most have reported it usually happens for them at around the 18 month mark. Before stopping this shot, always be sure to talk it over with your doctor, as he or she may have a better option for you or another way for you to regulate your cycles faster.

Take heed when taking Depo

Some women have stopped taking this shot for many years and are still unable to become pregnant. This mainly depends upon how this shot affects you and your body. But before beginning take the shots, you should always discuss all of the possible side effects with your OBGYN or general doctor, especially if you plan to become a mom in the not too distance future. It is not something they tell you when you are young and wanted to prevent unwanted pregnancies, that it may mess up your fertility in the long run. So look at your options, and make a wise choice.

Side effects

These shots can have varied side effects on different women, as it is always best to see how it will affect you. If you are unable to become pregnant after you’ve stopped the Depo shot, then you will need to speak with your doctor. There are many other options readily available for you to help you be able to conceive a beautiful baby like taking various fertility supplements to help kickstart your reproductive system, regulate your hormones and cycles, to get you back on track.

    I have been off the depo for 7 months (November 2015) since i been off the depo I have normal periods. The only thing that was different about my periods is that where either 7 days on or I would been on it for two days the skip a day or two then back on. My last period was April 25 thru 29. I missed my period in May. I took one pregnancy test when i thought i was supposed to start and was negative took another one a couple of a days ago and showed up negative also. Has anyone been on the depo shot and when stopped taking it did yall have this happen to any of yall ladies?

    I recently got off the depo shot i was sheduled for appt in mid-april but decided to get it another day it was going to be my last shot but by time i was gonna reshedule it was too late. I heard it takes months to a year to become refertilized and im just worried.. I been off of the shot for 2 months now and i have been on my period for about 1 month now im not sure what to do.. Before the depo shot i would get my period 5days or 1 week depending on if it was heavy or light and once i got on the depo i had it for 1 and half.. I just need some expert advice on how to approach this situation.

    I was on the depo shot for 6 months I just recently got it removed 4 days ago and my partner and I are trying to have a baby . We tried on the 2 day after I got the depo removed and also on the 3 day.
    Can there be a high chance I can be pregnant?

    I got three depo shots one every three months , I got off it because I was bleeding the whole time I was on depo . I was one of the least fortunate people who it didn’t effect to well . So I got off of it . I haven’t been on depo for 6 months . I already have one child and I thought I’d be fertile enough to get pregnant with another . I get normal 7 day periods every 28 days . Why aren’t I getting pregnant ???!

    i took my last shot in October of 2015 came on my cycle in march cause I never went back to get it because I wnted to lay off it 4 awhile because I was on it 4 51/2 to 6 years, but now I’m scared because I’m 2 weeks late according to my cycle tracker and I don’t want to be pregnant.. I’m stressed to the max about it cause its so weird to me cause I was on my cycle march april and may but not this month, could it be from me stressing about it? I’m waiting for it to come back so I can get back on the depo shot, and that’s how I notice.. like what should I do I talked to my doc and she said if I haven’t came on by july 20 I need to make a apt, but I just like that’s gonna be late.. I took like 6 pregnancies test negative of course, cuz I’m super scared, I’m also having sinus problems pressure in my ears, nose but I did have unprotected sex once.. no signs of pregnancy symptom. help me figure this out

    I got the shot from 2006 to 2013 then stopped. Only just started getting my period again, last month with lighter spotting. My concern is that this month I am now going on two weeks with very heavy bleeding and passing large clots. Is this to be expected after not menstruating for so long? I am 47 years old.
