Dr. Mary David
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
It varies : Some women will start ovulating and having periods again as soon as the month after their shot was due but it can take up to a year and there is no way to know what will the case for any given woman. Conception should occur within a year with ovulation and regular unprotected intercourse. After that, if you haven't conceived, it is time for an infertility work up. Hope this helps.
