I was told it would take about 6 months to get pregnant after depo, but obviously it varies! But yeah, if you're pre-op you should wait at least a year, preferably 18 months.

It took my daughter about 14 months to get pregnant after stopping depo, but after that pregnancy she got pg really quick and wasn't really trying.

Not post surgery. It took me a year before I had a period after I stopped depo. I switched to the low dose pill after I got regulated and ended up getting pregnant with my daughter.

Thank you for all your comments

I am currently 15 months out but after reading that it has taken most people a year to conceive after the depo I have decided not to get my next shot and what will be will be!!

My weight has been pretty stable for a few months now and I'm going to request my bloods all be done so I know what i need to work on, on the run up to conceiving but I don' want to have to wait longer then I have to :)

Don't meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with catchup!
