I have 2 children already. I have been on the Depo shot for 5 years and am going off of it this month. I have always waited to get my next shot till the last few days before it expired. I was wondering for those of you who have done it similar to me, how long did it take you to get pregnant after you stopped taking the shot. Thanks in advance.

I was on Depo for 2 years and came off when we decided to have our second child. We had planned to get pregnant in the Spring/Summer so I didn't renew my shot in October. We were pregnant by Christmas, barely 2 months later

I was on depo for about 2years or a little less.. I got pregnant about 4 months or so later. My youngest is 4 so my dates might be off a little but I know for me it didnt take too long. Good luck. On a side note, I was on the pill and when I stopped using that after 3 1/2 years it only took about a month to get pregnant. Good Luck
