Hello ladies. Im new to this site and wasn't for sure where to post at. I've been reading all these stories about women ttc after depo and its horrible. First off let me say im 24 years old. I am.a mother of 2 already. I consider myself.to be in.decent shape although high blood pressure runs in.my family and i was targeted. Otherwise im 5'1 and weigh 142. I had my first and only shot in july of 13 and i was to return in Oct and never did. Ill be off of depo for 3 whole months as of jan 14th 2014. I have been taking prenatal vitamins everyday. I even went amd bought raspberry tea. I drank it one time and it didnt agree with me . I have been having cramps like my cycle wants to come but there is nothing. Im not on any bc nor do i want to be. I feel whatever happens will. I just dont understand why my.cycle is taking forever to start. My friends that have been on.it before says it only took them.3 weeks after stopping to get a cycle and they are heavier than me. Is there any ladies that have had any success on becoming pregnant? Is there something i should be doing differently or taking? Any advice is greatly appreciated. I also have sex every other day if not twice a day. I have read that you can ovulate without having a cycle. I dont know how true that is also. Thanks again.
Three months is not long at all hun, they say the average for a period to return is 6-18 months, I got mine 9 months after my shot and it's now been 14 months since my shot and I'm still not pregnant.
Everyone reacts differently to it, there's some people who conceive without even getting their periods back! I know the waiting and having now idea what's going on with your body is stressful but just give it some time, I would only suggest you take pre conception vitamins and let your body naturally get back to its ways.
Sorry no success story yet but just wanted to share my experience so far x
Babyjan- thanks for replying. Its very nerve wrecking that its taking so long. When.i jabe gotten this in the past bout 4 years ago they came right back especially after one cycle pf pills. i jhave two friends.who.are much bigger than me they took one shot amd boom.cycle.was.back.after last.month. they.say oys stored in.fat and that i don't have much of so whats the problem. I also noticed that the longer ur on it the longer ot takes to come back. As i said i.consider . myself mostly healthy i take a pnv everyday. I can feel oit coming but.nothing. i start work soon amd id hate for it to come.then. lol also i have a lot on my mind.but ok when a person is on depo doesnt it.thin ur lining os this y a ccycle would take lng to come back also becuz it has to build itself up which is y we cramp? Also its crazy how when a person.gets depo and they are bleeding one shot of that will stop uoir bleeding however ot takes months tocome back ugh. Sorry im rambling.im just annoyed. Never again. So doesanyone know how long side effects last. My breasts feel like.bricks in themorning. Im.tired of frequent urinating and eating and being.sick this sucks.
hi I was on depo for 7 months so that was 2 shots worth, and that was after switching to depo after coming off cerezette due to it making me bleed for weeks at a time. I knew it would take a while after depo for anything to happen but I never went back in the March for the next shot, first period august, didn't get another till December then February then didn't get another, with me not being regular I did test a few times to get BFN so I just stopped testing and resigned myself to the fact it was going to take longer, then after going to hospital for something unrelated it turned out I was 8 weeks pregnant with out now little boy. So all in all it took us a year after coming off depo to conceive. I have just been and got the pill of the doctor as I didn't want anything permanent but me and OH have now decided to NTNP for our next one, I am quite glad he has agreed as I had a touch of endometritis after our sons birth and even though it was treated I still worry it will have had some affect on my fertility even of this does sound totally irrational.
Hi! No success story here yet. I am right there with you though. I was due my last shot on the 12th of November and all I've had is spotting I'm hoping it isn't going to take too long
The spotting is driving me crazy! I've been taking ovulation tests but all negative so I'm kinda giving up on them.
I'm hoping we don't have to long to wait I just wish I never had the shot I only had one!!
(OH says he's going to keep sending his little men in to kock at the door until eggy comes out to play!)
Missnurse- congrat!! i know it can happen but when. Thats what is irritating us all. So u had a cycle 5 months later? That is good. Least it wasnt a whole year! @ Punk_mum at least ur having some spotting im.getting nada. I just had a really sharp pain shoot down my right pelvic region tho eek! Good luck to u. Me and my spouse is pretty much doing what ur husband said @ babyjan really there is a lady on here that is expecting after depo without having a cycle?? Wow...did she have any symptoms,,etc? Thanks ladies.
It's so frustrating isn't it?! I'm sorry we're all in the same position.
How long were you ladies on depo?
I also read that it doesn't matter whether you had one shot or 100 shots. Which doesn't seem to make sense to me, but hey ho.
I would like to lose 10 pounds so I'm trying to see the silver lining that I at least have the time to do it!
We should try to keep this thread going as it's nice to have fellow bump chasers in the depo trenches!
