Not yet: It can take several months for your periods to regulate after you stop the depo-provera shot. See your doctor if your periods haven't resumed 6 months after stopping the shot.

It can help: Clomid (clomiphene) is a safe succesful treatment for many women ttc who have ovulatory problems. It is not 100% successful but has a good track record. Absolutely only to be used under care of a doctor skilled in this area, and only after ruling out conflicting problems though.
