new to site, trying to conceive after the depo injection

Postby michelle25 » Mon Nov 14, 2011 12:56 pm

hi everyone i'm new to this site

i'm 25 and have been on the depo injection from the age of 17-24.
i had my last injection in september 2010, my periods returned in feb and have become regular in the last 4/5 months ranging from 32-34 day cycles.
but still had no luck in conceiving.

has anyone else had problems with ttc after the depo or had any success?

i will be going to the doctors this week as its been a year.

thanks x :D

I went on the depo injection in january. I was on the pill before, I came off in april 2011, got my period back in augest, had 2 regular periods now. and been trying to conceive with both of them, I'm now 9 days past ovulation with some symptoms. Not sure if they're a good sign or what. good luck to you :)

Good luck :) hope you got a bfp.

Thought I would update on my situation, I went to the doctors last week and she referred me for a blood test to see if I'm ovulating. That's on the 5th december, so when I get the results I will try and update again xx

I took depo for two years stopped in 2007. Took 18 months for :af: to return. Have had one :bfp: since then that ended in m/c. I will never recommend that anyone do that to their body. I hope you have so much luck in your journey. We are trying this last time before ivf. When :af: shows we begin our cycle.

Thanks I wish you luck too.
the depo is horrible, I'll never have it again now.

Well I got my results back and they were normal, so I'm definitely ovulating so if nothings happened again this month then I'll send the other half to the doctors x

Thought I'd chime in. I had 2 shots of Depo in 2010, last was in Aug. 2010. First AF was in Feb 2011 and have had normal cycles since then, TTC since August 2011.

Although I have regular cycles now after being on BC for 10 years, after the Depo my periods are shorter with lighter flow. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if it's due to Depo, age, or a combo of both that my lining seems less "lush"...
