I'm aware that the Depo shot can take up to a year to wear off I've been off of it for about 5 to 6 months. But I do know some girls that have gotten pregnant less than a month afterward. I dont wanna stress myself out but when should I start to worry. Husband is having a hard time trying to grasp why I'm not pregnant yet but he's gets to unconfortable when I start going into lady stuff. And should I go ahead and look into a pre-pregnancy examine?

It's never too late to do a pre-pregnancy exam, especially to get started on vitamins and getting healthier.  Are you doing anything to track ovulation like using ovulation predictor kits or charting your basal body temperature?  How often are you having sex?
