Does taking combo BC pill help regulate cycles after Depo-Provera and return ovulation?  Will taking the pill make it easier to get pregnant after depo?

The return to normal ovulation and to fertility after depo or BC is rather unpredictable and very variable. Eat healthy, take folic acid, exercise...and draft your personal reproductive health plan which fits your lifestyle. ...Read more
