A disadvantage of depo is it may take 6 months to 2 years before fertility is restored.
Keep track of your menstrual cycle and try having sex on days when you’re ovulating. Always maintain a healthy weight because being too thin or too heavy can also cause hormone problems. You might also want to chat with an infertility specialist. Good luck.
