I'm new here but just wanted to ask if anyone has/had any troubles trying to conceive since they have came off the contraceptive injection. My last injection was due in January this year but I didn't go for it as me and my partner decided we wanted to start trying for a baby. My periods only returned 2 months ago but now I'm just worried its going to take a lot longer than we were expecting.
Any suggestions or advice is welcome and I really want to know if it's taken anyone else a long time??
I got AF 3 months after my last injection, its been 15months and still no BFP, i actually know someone who was infertile for 22 years after having the injection for 6years, so im super stressed about it all which doesnt help
I was on the Depo injection for 8 years and then fell pregnant with DD within 2 months. Restarted the Depo after having DD, I was on it for another year before stopping. Fell pregnant with DS on the first attempt. AF has always returned within a week or two of the Depo expiring.
Depo is the devil! I was on it for about 10 years af reappeared after 9 months of it "wearing off" Mad cycles, all over the place for a year 10 months after af until I ovulated Ovulated 5 times Had bfp August 2015 Had a mc at 5 weeks on August bank holiday Monday Now not ovulating again We are in our 27th month of ttc and no closer to the goal We are now looking at going private for IVF in feb to Czech Republic as the nhs are total shits and keep delaying any help. Wish I'd bitten the bullet earlier and done IVF years ago. Or had clomid to help with ovulation. The emotional turmoil gets harder and harder with every month of failure. Depo is the devil!
I just thought id update as i posted before but there is hope! Im 15months post depo and i got my BFP this morning! Its been a long 15months but i guess its only 3months over the 'norm'! I wish the best of luck to you all!
I was on depo for four years and it took me 4 years to conceive after stopping the depo despite my periods returning within 6 months. My first two children were conceived within 2 months of me coming off the pill.
