I've been off the depo since December 2014 me & my fiance want to have another child but couldn't. This month I haven't had my period at all & I wanted to know if this happened to anyone who had the same problem
Yes it's very common that it can take up to 18 months to regain fertility once stopping Depo.
If you are still having problems, you could try using Agnus Castus, as long as you are not now using any form of hormonal birth control.
Agnus Castus is a natural remedy that works to balance your hormones. It got me back into a regular monthly cycle, within 6 weeks of starting it. I now use a lower, maintenance dose, to keep my hormones balanced. It has not only given me a regular cycle, but it has helped with my PMS/PMT enormously.
YOU CANNOT USE AGNUS CASTUS ALONG SIDE ANY FORM OF HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL. It works to help your body balance your hormones, whereas hormonal birth control deliberately causes an imbalance, to prevent pregnancy. This means that the two could work against each other, & you could end up pregnant.
