There : There is no evidence that any of these supplements can stimulate ovulation. There are no studies that demonstrate that these will help. Most women who go off Depo-Provera do start ovulating in the next few months. Try staying in bed for 15 minutes after intercourse with your knees up, and be sure you have optimal nutrition. If you don't get pregnant in the next several months then consulting a gynecologist would be reasonable.
