I am talking about having a baby the normal way :)  I'm talking about doing a fertility detox to flush  the toxins from the birth control out of your system, which will help you get your cycle back, have a read of this site and look up fertility detox www.natural-fertility-info.  com (spaced out so it wont get xxx out )   :)

Hiya, I was on the depro injection for almost a year. My period was very weird after that with little or no period pains. My doctor said it can take up to year to get pregnant after the injection. The depro injection wore of in May 2011 and I got pregnant in December 2011. So I would advice you to keep on trying and be patient. Hopefully you'll get pregnant by the end of the year. I think that there's something you can take to increase your chances of conceiving. This could help. Keep me posted.

this isnt a very nice form of contraception as it can muck your cycles up when you decide to come off it, alot of ladies take ages to get their periods after they stop and it can take up to a year before they become regular, you could maybe look into doing a fertility detox which will help you get rid of any excess hormones that are still in your system from the depo
