Depo is gone now: Your period came back fast; 1 month after missing the last scheduled shot in october. Your fertility is 'back to normal' once your periods returned. At 32, you can try for up to a year, until october 2012, before seeing a fertility specialist (rei) for help if needed. 5 out of 6 couples get pregnant in 1st year trying. Use an ovulation predictor kit, have intercourse 2-3 times a week. Best wishes. ...Read more
