Hi there! Although I am not a mommy yet, I'm hoping it is in my stars soon. I have been doing a lot of research on this topic but I thought it might also be educational as well as hope instilling to hear other people's stories and experiences.
I was on the depo shot for approximately 7-8 years. I ever had my period while I was on it. When I met my fiancé we decided we would like to try to start a family so I discontinued use of it. I got my first period about 9 months after my last injection. As of today I have been depo free for 2 years and 2 months but we still have not been successful in getting pregnant. I try not to stress about it as I believe it will happen when it's meant to, it's just that from what I have been reading, 2 years seems to be a little extensive.
I'm just curious as to other moms experiences in this situation.
Look forward to hearing from you, thanks for reading my post :)

I used to be on the depo shot and I ended up getting pregnant with my first child! I couldn't believe it. After I had my little girl I wanted to make sure I didn't get prego again so I got an IUD put in. I had so many problems with the IUD that I had to get it removed after 2 years and went on the pill. After being on the pill for 6 months, come to find out again that I am pregnant. I can't win here. Lol. But in my experience, it just happened. Maybe you are concentrating too much on getting pregnant that you are actually causing yourself to stress. Stress can affect how and when you get pregnant. I personally believe that it happens when you least expect it to. I had no concerns what so every about getting pregnant and look what happened, it just came by itself. Maybe try to take your mind off the idea of having a baby and reduce your stress levels and it will come naturally when you least expect it to.
