Hi yes I been ttc for awhile after coming off depo what should u take when trying to conceive?

Take time to relax: Also, folic acid is a good idea if one is trying to conceive, and also during pregnancy. It helps prevent a birth defect in the spine of the fetus. Taking the routine prenatal vitamins is adequate folic acid supplementation for most women trying to get pregnant or already pregnant. However, folic acid supplements are not "good for getting pregnant", meaning they don't help one get pregnant. ...Read more

I was supposed to renew my depo shot December 29th, but I want a baby, Ive been trying to conceive since the. Do you think I could conceive so early?

No it could take: up to 3 months after the Depo has run out before you conceive. Your period should be returning to normal soon, which means you will ovulate. 2 weeks after first day of menstruation is when you should start "working hard" to conceive. And thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

See a doctor: You need an ultrasound and a hormonal evaluation to see what's going on. It's common not to get periods for a few months after stopping depot, but 1 year is a little long. Time to see your gynecologist. Good luck! ...Read more

How soon after my Depo-Provera shot. Wears off can I start trying to conceive?

How soon after my Depo-Provera shot. Wears off can I start trying to conceive?

Right away: You can start trying to conceive right away. Are you sure that's a good idea at 16 years of age? One should ideally finish high school and have a job allowing one to support a child, as children cost, over 18 years, on average over $250, 000. I notice celexa (citalopram). 16 years of age, a history of depression and a new baby are not a good combination. Consider waiting until you are older, more stable. ...Read more

My friend is trying to conceive. She was on the Depo-Provera prevera. Her last shot was january 16. How long would it take her to conceive?

Depo and menses: The Depo-Provera shot makes the lining thin and is a hormone injection that lasts up to 3 months. In some patients, it may last a bit longer so it appears she may be one of them. It may take a while until her body adjusts back to normal and her cycles come every month. I would tell her to monitor the bleeding and see her doctor if it doesn't come and she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Depoprovera: Depoprovera is a injectable contraceptive medication that last 3 months in your body. It is very strong and chances of becoming pregnant while on this contraceptive are rare although never impossible. It functions by thickening the cervical mucous and changing the endometrium in addition to supressing a hormone called lh, eventually suppresing ovulation. In some patient effects can last 18 months. ...Read more

I just recently stopped taking Depo-Provera shots and i'm trying to conceive. I only got two shots but my body hasn't gone back to normal. What can I do?

I just recently stopped taking Depo-Provera shots and i'm trying to conceive. I only got two shots but my body hasn't gone back to normal. What can I do?

Not much: A woman can do after a Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection but to wait until periods come back to normal. After a Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection the contraceptive effects last for 3 months, but it can take 3-6 months after the last injection to get back to normal fertile cycles in some women. Some women will take cyclic Progesterone or bcp to have regular periods, but that doesn't bring back fertile cycles faster. ...Read more

Infertility: We don't declare infertility until you go 12 months of unprotected sex w/o conceiving. So you have plenty of time as it can take that long for your body to regain fertility after stopping Depo-Provera. In meantime, start prenatal vitamins to minimize risk of neural tube defects. Take this time to get in best health ever. Eat right & exercise regularly. ...Read more

I've taken my last Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection September 27, 2014. My partner & I are trying to conceive. Is it possible, will we have any luck?

Of course: Hello Ashley,

The Depo-Provera lasts 90 days. So after the 1st of the year your body will start to cycle because the suppression is going away. No one can predict when the cycles/ ovulation etc. will become normal. Just be reassured that this is a reversible form of contraceptive and it has been proven reliable in it's contraceptive characteristics and it's reversibility. ...Read more

My last Depo-Provera was in feb and since then we have been trying to conceive and have not been able to? Do you have any suggestions? We have sex daily.

Might not be depo: The effects of depoprovera can last for quite a long time after stopping, particularly if you took it for a long time or if you are heavier. Your problems could also have nothing to do with depoprovera but related to the hundreds of other male and female factors that can cause infertility. If no pregnancy after 1 year trying, see a fertility specialist. ...Read more

See Ob/Gyn: If you hare not getting pregnant, you should consult with an Ob/Gyn or Reproductive Endocrinologist. Its a complicated endeavor and requires lots of tests.
