in two years I'm gonna stop the depo & me & my fiancé want to have a baby. well be financially ready & everything. but I've been reading about how hard it is to get pregnant after the depo shot...we REALLY want a baby!!!!! plus the doctors told me to take these calcium chews everyday because I'm really skinny & tiny (I'm 5,0" & 95 pounds) so I don't have bone loss...how long do you think it'll be until I get pregnant after 2 years?! :c

I was on the depo for 2 years and exactly one year later I got pregnant. I wasn't really "trying" in the beginning of the year though. It was more if it happened then it happened. We didnt use protection. However it took my body the full year to get my cycle back and my periods normal again since the depo stopped my periods completely. They were light and irregular until two months before I got pregnant (they had started to become regular again). I have heard of others getting pregnant right away after stopping the depo shot though. I guess it all depends on your body and how your body adjusts to being off the depo...
