Been On The Depo For Years When Do I Ovulate
How do I know when to conceive. I was on Depo-Provera shot for about 4-5 years and have been off of it for almost two years.
14 days before: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. You can also use a home ovulation kit. ...Read more
90 days: Depo is typically given once every 3 months for birth control because it has a 90 day therapeutic range. If you got the shot 2 times (at the beginning and 3 months later) you were covered for 6months.Then most women will ovulate and have a period in the 90 days after the last shot's therapeutic range. For example, #1 shot sept 1st, #2 shot dec 1st, then expect a period mar-may. Some start later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do my ovaries hurt when i sneeze? Not on period, not on birth control- have been of for just over a month. Had first period since.
Ultrasound: For this answer you probably need a physical exam and perhaps an ultrasound. Checking for an ovarian cyst is one possibility. The source of the pain may not be your ovaries though. Sneezing causes a tightening of the abdominal wall muscles and this may be the source of the pain. You also should be checked for a hernia. ...Read more

Normal cycle: Your cycle is normal and the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) taken before, likely has no influence on your inability to conceive. If you have not conceived in 8.5 mo and are having regular sex mid cycle, you could try to measure follow your ovulation with a kit to better time the optimal day to try. If you do not conceive in the next few cycles, i would seek help from an ob/gyne. ...Read more

I haven't been ovulating for the past 6 months. What can I do to ovulate? By the way im iregular on my period.
See a REI specialist: Irregular cycles mean you're not ovulating regularly. See a reproductive endocrinology (rei) physician to find out why: pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome), thyroid or prolactin problems, low egg supply, or low hormone levels from exercise etc. If you're ttc we can help you ovulate, often with tablets like Clomid (clomiphene) or letrozole. Metformin is used for pcos. If not ttc you can take birth control pills. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many : Many women who take depo stop menstruating. This is actually one of the most common side effects. Many women dislike this because they worry that they may be pregnant. Over time they realize this is just a side effect of the depo and they become less and less concerned. In the beginning you will need a lot of reassurance, which possibly means a serum (blood) pregnancy test. If over time you don't like not having a period you may want to consider another birth control option. All the best. ...Read more

Inserting an iud only on the menstrual cycle is very old-fashioned and unnecessary our office is near you. Schedule a visit and we will be happy to help you. ...Read more
I have been off the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot for 11 months and ttc. My period did return but not normal. What can I do to return my fertility?
See a fertility doc: Not an infrequent issue with patients who have used depo-provera for contraception. However, it would be appropriate to assess if there are any other fertility related issues and rule out any other reasons for the irregular cycles. In the absence of other issues, the use of fertility medications to restore follicle growth and ovulation may be indicated. ...Read more

Is it true that i will not get pregnant within 120 days after my last Depo-Provera shot? I have been on Depo-Provera for 4 years.
