Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
24/02/2015 at 13:07
i was hoping to hear if anybody has concieved within one year of stopping the depo injection?
it has been exactly a year since i had my last shot and in that time have had 5 periods, the last 3 seem to be settling back to average 28 days apart. I did not have a period for nearly 4 months straight after stopping.
i am currently late for this months period (i think) BFN on tests. So once again think it is still the damn depo messing with me...anyone in a similar situation?

I had Depo shots for about year after my DD was born in 2012( no periods for that year). My periods came back 6months after I stopped depo, it was very irregular and sometimes I would miss periods too (this was the start of my poas addiction). I got pregnant a year after my periods came back (sept2014) which unfortunately ended in a mmc at 8weeks. I really wish I never went ahead with them shots(4 in total), it just made me gain a ton of weight and messed my body I guess it works differently with each person.

Thank you for replying!
So very sorry about your miscarraige xx me too, i only had 2 shots, but they didn't agree with me and i bled constantly. Worst form of contraception i ever took. I also gained weight and am still struggling to loose it.
I have been ttc for 8 months and i am getting no-where! This cycle is my longest again for 3 months, just want my body to return to normal.
are your periods regular now? When was your last shot?

Aww sorry to hear too, Depos really suck.
I had my last shot nearly two years ago???? (just realised how long it's been). I haven't had a regular cycle since Depo shots. Basically I found out I had a mmc in December at 8weeks+, so had a ERPC. Then a month later this January I found that I retained tissues from my mmc, so had to have another ERPC. I had a crazy journey but hopefully my periods should be coming bk sometime this week or next (had a follow up which confirmed that I ovulated this month yay). So I'm just patiently waiting for my cycle to return. I think I'm going to throw a party when my period shows face

Im so sorry to hear about any other woman who has lost a child! I was on depo back in 2008. I had only gotten the first shot and bled the whole time but somehow ended up pregnant! That pregnancy ended in a stillborn birth at 5 months ????! I have been ttc since then! In 2010 i had my uterus and cervix checked for any complications and was said to be normal but I am still having trouble! As of this month i am actually 6 days late right now but it's been so long trying that I can't even really get too excited without telling myself "keep dreaming it's coming any minute"! Everyone's body is definitely different though Hun...baby dust to all!

Is your cycle regular now?
Aww I'm soo sorry for your loss too, I really pray you get you're BFP. Sending lots of baby dust your way too xxxx

thank you! And yes it's a regular 31-32 day cycle as of lately it just never went back to a 28 day cycle but I heard that changes for some after a pregnancy anyway!
24/02/2015 at 17:51
I am so sorry for your loss, i count myself lucky that i have never suffered a miscarraige, i cannot imagine how you feel, babydust to you both Xxx
i think the depo has a lot to answer for, it has completely screwed my body up and pretty much anybody else's i talk to that had it!! Wish i could go back and choose a different contraceptive!
I am hoping i am pregnant but deep down i think i know its still the after effects lingering!! Absolutely gutted
It seems anyone who has had this injection really struggles to either concieve or carry to full term!
24/02/2015 at 18:08
I agree I'm sure we all would've picked a different conteeceptive if we knew it would affect us to this extent ???? !
i hope this is it for you ....for any of us with a possibility right now...I'm going through that same gutted feeling right now telling myself af will show *fingers crossed, toes crossed and eyes crossed* lol
24/02/2015 at 18:12
Fingers crossed for us both then..lets keep hoping!! xxx
02/03/2015 at 09:20
Any news girls? No AF & no BFP for me!! 9 days late now...getting fed up, think i didn't ovulate!!
anyone else had issues after the depo injection? Please share x
02/03/2015 at 11:28
im just at the EPU getting a check up. Still no AF and i am 6weeks post ERPC the doctor confirmed I ovulated at my last check up but still nothing I have been getting really bad cramping too. Hopefully will find out what's going on soon fx.
Aww hope you get your bfp xxx
02/03/2015 at 11:59
I hate what this injection has done to my body! Its just made me question everything all the time...my body isn't doing what its supposed to do
dont know about you but its stressing me out.
good luck for a BFP too xx
02/03/2015 at 12:28
It's stressed me out too, it complete ruined my body. I actually blame it for my mmc . Before my cycle was on point every 28 days now it's just so messed up.
Thank you and keep me posted please x
02/03/2015 at 16:32
Just to update.
Went to my follow up and was told I should expect AF any day now and that all is well. So relieved, can't wait to have it so I can start ttc.
02/03/2015 at 16:54
hope it does come for you soon so you can carry on ttc asap xx
I have 3 weddings this year all before August so i have decided i am going to carry on not using protection with hubby but concentrate on loosing a stone & half and if we concieve then i will be over the moon. So no more stressing for me until August lol xx

I think taking the relaxed approach is defiantly the best idea. It will happen when you least expect it. Also if you do get pregnant before the summer, I'm sure you will look stunning with your little bump at the weddings.
Sending lots of baby dust your way xxxx

Thank you Sahra1 xx
babydust to you too

I came off depo in Oct 2013 as I had been on it for 5 years without a break and heard it takes a while for your periods to come back! A whole year later my periods returned but were all over the place. I was having 2 a month in some cases! So yes, depo has really messed me up too!
They have kind of sorted themselves out now but I'm still struggling to pinpoint ovulation. I used the clear blue ov kits last month but ran out of sticks before hitting peak!
I have estimated that I ovulated around 20th-23rd Feb and af is due 9th March (Roughly!) Its so hard not to get your hopes up but I've felt funny in the last few days. Way too early for any symptoms and I know its in my head!
Arrrggh! If it hasn't happened this time think I might start temping or certainly book an apt with Dr.
Good luck to us all ????
