Automatic: These BC methods work by preventing ovulation.They do that by providing a hormone that tricks your body into believing you are already pregnant. Once you stop all external sources of hormones, the body will resume releasing eggs. It takes longer for the shot than the pill, but the return of fertility is automatic. Average desired pregnancy requires about a year after off BC.
