Depo Question
Mon, 11-08-2010 - 2:32pm

Hello there! I'm hoping someone can help me out with a depo question I have....I've been doing some reading online and I'm a bit nervous. I've been on depo since March 2010 and I've had a wonderful weight gain, not a drop of spotting since I've started it....really none of the bad side effects. I got married in April and my husband and I want to start TTC in the next 6 months or so. I'm due to get my next shot by the end of the month and I'm unsure if I should get it or not because of what I've heard about it taking so long to get out of your system.

So.....I'm looking for opinions, experiences, etc!! Thanks in advance!!

Hi Lindsay,

Everyone is different, so I'd say definitely discuss this with your doctor.

The "average" (according to trials) for the body to begin ovulating again is about 5 1/2 months after the last injection. This, of course, varies from person to person. If you are concerned, I believe you can contact your doctor's office and ask for blood tests to check your hormone levels.

HTH! :)
