Depoprovera: If you used depoprovera, some women can see a delay in conceiving up to 18 months in some extreme cases, however after depoprovera use it may take a few months to recover fertility potential. Chances of becoming pregnancy after the pill are the same as in every women, ruling out any medical complication. First month after the pill you should have the same chances as everyone else.
