Time on Depo: 3 months
Last shot: Received 10/2012 (so ran out 01/2013)
Haven't used any sort of BC since... actively TTC.

My periods never stopped- I bled during most of my time on Depo (along with all of the other side effects), then I seemed to jump back to normal Jan/Feb. March I was late (and was hoping pregnant, but no- just depo side effects). End of March I started bleeding- and it didn't stop until May. I'm now more "regular" - but not in a good way- last 4 cycles have been 14-15 days (with extremely light periods). (been to doctors, they said just side effects, and not to worry until it's been a year since the shot wears off!)

I'm far too impatient for this :/

Hi all - i posted earlier in the threat (much earlier i must admit) But wanted to come back and update you all that i got my BFP yesterday afternoon with another one this morning! It took us 18 months from when my shot wore off and 6 months of Clomid (I finished the 6 months last month) so this baby was naturally conceived.
Don't give up hope girls - i am 34 so on the older side of things - but it will happen!! Thinking of you all!

Congrats! I know that's a big relief after waiting so long!

I posted about a year and a half ago in this thread after coming off depo and having odd cycles for a year. They finally began to regulate in May '12 and my ex and I separated and divorced so I went back on Depo. I was on it for 6 months/2 shots and then started a pill that made me only have af every 3 months. After 4.5 montha on that, I quit taking it and got my BFP with my DF on the second cycle off bc. I honestly think depo did me a favor in not allowing my cycle to regulate and me to get preg with my ex! I would go back on it in a hearbeat!

Thanks! It is a huge relief - its horrible not being able to conceive and not knowing why...

I still have no desire to have #2. In fact, I got Mirena in January but it has the same hormone as Depo and I feel like it's giving me issues so I am switching to Paragard next week. It's the hormone free, copper IUD.

Some slight good news- the 11th makes 11 months since I got the shot, and I *finally* got my first +opk today (hey- it's a step in the right direction after months of poas)... Hopefully this means it won't be too much longer!

Was your last shot in November or October? Mine was around 10th November 2012!

That was also my first and LAST ever shot.

My shot was October 11, 2012. My temps make it look like I O'd this cycle (last 3 appear so as well), but I'm now 16 dpo (CD 34) with no sign of AF and a BFN- so I may still be a little off. (this is the longest cycle I've had since the shot- last was 25 days!)
This is the most obvious temp shift I've had (the others have jumped around a lot), so I'm hoping this is a good sign!
