Yes, you can. No birth control is a 100%.

Trying to conceive whilst on Depo is not advisable. Although not impossible to conceive whilst taking it, it's highly unlikely that you would, and Depo can cause problems with an unborn baby.
Once you're off Depo, it can take up to 18 months to regain your fertility.

Have a look into Agnus Castus, aa herbal remedy for hormonal issues. Might just help with those heavy periods.

Thank you so much.this is really a big help. Its not even heavy uts very painful.

Agnus is great for:
Mood swings
Sore breasts
Fluid retention
Heavy, painful periods
Agnus is really effective in these circumstances; normally you will see improvements within 1-3 cycles.
Check with your local health store regarding use whilst trying for a baby, though. Just to be safe, as I've not knowledge of it in that area.
