    Vitex is supposed to help regulate you hormones, Royal Jelly is supposed to help with egg quality, and then like somedaymama said that red raspberry leaf tea is supposed to help you uterus be nice and cozy for a bean to stick =)

    Hope you don't mind if I join in? I had my last Depo injection October '09 so it should have "worn off" Jan '10.

    Since then I had really really light spotting about 6 weeks ago but nothing since.

    How long did you have to wait for a proper af and did you do/take anything to kick start it? I found a website today that suggests Dandelion root and Milk Thistle to cleanse the liver but I am gernarally sceptical about herbal remedies.

    I just wish that my GP had been a bit more honest with me years ago. They knew that I was getting married two years ago as we got married abroard so had to have malaria pills. I remember being told that it could take "up to" a year but there was no suggestion that a year was the average.

    Welcome Sarah!

    My Af returned about 1 month after the depo ran out but that is because i took one week of bcp to kick start my af. But it has been about 10 months now and my periods are still not regular. I really hope that you dont have to wait that long for AF to be normal again. how long were you on it?

    I was on it for about 4 and a half years in total. In typical fashion as soon as you post af appears!

    Hi Ladies, it now been 5 years for me since my last dreaded depo injection! I have been under a fertility specialist for the last 12 months and he has now discharged me apperently there is nothing they can do untill i am 26 which is another 3 years away. This is getting soo frustrating now. I have read on here that a lady went on the normal pill to get her cycle back to normal and that worked for her she got pregnant has anyone else tried this or do you think its worth a try????

    Hey all,

    I think a few ppl have tried the pill after depo to regulate. Not sure what the outcome was though. :flower:

    Im surprised the doctors discharged you. A bit unfair if you ask me. :shrug:

    How many shots of Depo did you have?
    :hugs:

    I took 1 week of the pill and it started my cycles. Now they arent regular yet but i am fairly confident that it kick started my body into having a period so soon after my shot wore off

    hey all

    I came off depo in 2004 & have had weird side-effects ever since. I'm WTT right now but haven't used birth control since 2004 so I guess we've been TTC since then.

    Anybody want to give me some hope? :) I've got a lap scheduled for mid June.

    Hi Kayliegh,

    I was on depo for 3 and a half years, I have normal periods now and have had a few months on clomid to help me ovulate. I have been told there is no reason why we can't get pregnant so i guess it's just a waiting game for me!

    Hi ladies! I'm fairly new around here and was looking for a forum like this :) I was on the dreaded Depo shot from September 07 to January 09...My cycles have been normal since March 2009..So we have been trying since then with no success :( I went to the doctor today and he told me it could take another year..I hope not! He said my cycles are normal and im ovulating but it will just take time...I wish they would have told me about these shots after i had my daughter b/c i would have NEVER took them..but you live and you learn!

    Good Luck to everyone! I hope you all get your :bfp:'s soon!!! :D

    Hey ladies :wave:,
    Just thought I'd drop a little bit of hope in here for you's. I was on Depo for a year and a half, my last received shot ran out mid November '09 and I unexpectedly fell pregnant the end of February '10. It sadly ended as an ectopic (which had NOTHING to do with Depo, don't worry lol), but there's definitely hope !!
    Keep trying and baby dust to you all :) xx
