ok so this was the 2nd time I was on the depo shot... i was on it a year was due for my shot in july and in march i found out i was pregant... although we were not trying inbetween july and the time i found out i was expecting. That was my ex husband. ok so now i am remarried. I was on the shot for a year again, and my husband and i both have children with other people..I was due for my shot in October of 2011, my period returned in January of 2012 and has been completely normal every 28 days since..we have been trying to concieve since i got off of the shot and it is now going into October of 2012 and I am starting to get worried that something is wrong... I assumed that since everything went ok with the shot and getting pregnant last time that it would this time as well.I am also 29 and I was only 21 last time, so i dont know if that has anything to do with this problem. I have tried everything. I have done a cleanse, i take vitamins with folic acid in them, i drink alot of water..i am at my witts end trying to conceive. I know we both can have children so I dont understand why its not happening. I try not to stress over it, but its hard not to. I guess my question is; is there any way to get this stuff out of your system? Is there anyone out there that has a similar experience? Am I actually ovulating if I am having a regular 28 day period? Do you think we should see a doctor about this or is it to soon?
It can take a year or more to get pregnant after stopping it. You're right your age could make a difference, but probably not alot. Stop trying so hard. Keep taking the vits and folic acid, these are needed anyway for a safe pregnancy. There are tests now to find when you're ovulating, and this would help, to hit it right at that time. If it doesn't happen in a little while longer, see your gyne. Stressing over it won't help at all.
Ok doll, first stop stressing. Because stress is hard on the body and mind. I'm sure you have had your yearly checkup with your obgyn and if everything is normal, then you have nothing to worry about, it can be really simple, I have helped people with this same situation. Including my sister, What I suggest is go buy a ovulating kit from any pharmacy and follow the directions, it might take a couple of months but the three women I helped with this got pregnant within two months, it could be that your not timing your ovulation right. So get the test and give it a try. It can't hurt right. So good luck amd if you need any more info you can send me a private mesg, I have alot of experience with this. Best wishes for you
yes i had my yearly check up, but at that time it had only been 4 months since my last injection and now we are over a year since the last injection. I am definately worried about the age thing too..I purposely got off the shot so we could conceive and have a child before i hit 30 (my husband iss two years younger than I am)..i mean I know I am still young lol, but i wanna be young still when the kids are grown lol... and not only that but conception rates drop dramatically in your 30's as well as birth defects and miscarraige and all the bad stuff going up... I am going to try out the ovulation kits, I really hope they work. I wish I would have never done the shot thing a second time. I have not been stressing as bad as I was in the past, but it is just getting disappointing month after month. My thing is how was I able to conceive kids with my ex husband who was a total jerk, and it was unplanned...
he isnt even around anymore, my husband now is raising my kids and they know him as daddy,but when I try and both of us want it just as bad it doesnt happen... lol..i know i am getting a little ahead of myself though, it is just aggrevating. I thought that I would do things the right way this time, meet, fall in love, get married, I have my career , and then a baby, but its just not happening... Thanks for the feedback, I am on my way to the pharmacy now to pick up an ovulation kit... keep your fingers crossed that it happens soon.
Hello Nicci, these ladies are right about stress. I tried for years to get pregnant. And I did have problems needing correcting with surgery and medications. When we finally thought all was ok, nothing happened. All those months of tears and frustration finally hit me as a foolish way to be. I let it go. I sent a prayer out into the universe and put all my wishes and thoughts into it. And then just let it alone. Two months later I was pregnant and it went to full term. I have one beautiful daughter. She was enough. I was very grateful for that child. She has grown to be a beautiful amazing woman. Would I have wanted another child? Yes. Did it happen? No. All is fine. She is still a miracle today.
You have plenty of time for another child if that is to be. Relax and enjoy life. Healing takes time and there is no calendar that marks the spot. Be easy on your body. A little faith will take you a long way. You have been blessed with children already. A little patience and a good OB/GYN will make all the difference for you. Talk it out with your doctor. There is a lot to figure out. Wishing you wellness and happiness.
