I think it will take 6 months or so to conceive ( for a heathly couple) after taking off pills. I've been through this and it took me 6months. So, you are almost there. Good luck!!

It can take up to a year off birth control for a healthy couple to concieve, as per instructed by my gynocolegist.

 

I was one of those odd individuals who's cycles go back to normal immediately and concieved after a month. However, I was on Yasmin, the pill. For Depo users, because it often supresses your cycles (Ie. no period) it can take longer for your body to go back to normal and go into the swing of things. :smileyhappy:

 

Has your cycles even returned yet?

It took me 8 months after I quit depo to get pregnant and my periods were normal. I thought I could have kids but wa la 8 months later and I was pregnant. Good luck!

Everyone is different but I know they say to give it a year off birth control to get pregnant before seeking fertility help.  Good luck and have fun!

Re: I have been off birth control since May and still nothing.

I stopped taking my bith control pills at the beginning of Oct 2013 and by Nov 2013 I was pregnant. Unfortunately in Dec 2013 we found out there was some complication and the baby's heart had stopped functioning and that I would have to have a D&C becuase I was not having any signs of a miscarriage. Give yourself some time and everything will work out for you.
