Hello im 19 and I've been off depo shot for a year now and i only got my period 5 months later but for 2 days and that was the last time i had it. I've been having sex with my boyfriend now and he came inside me 3 times. Is it possible for me to get pregnant if ive been off depo for a year or is it not? And how long until i get my period?. I only had the shot 2 times.
Yes it's possible to get pregnant, because you may never know if you're ovulating for the first time since stopping Depo. You'd ovulate before having a period, so could know nothing about it until you develop pregnancy symptoms or do a test.
However, it can take some women 18 months or so before becoming fertile again, from the point at which Depo has left your body.
If you're wanting to speed things up, you can try using agnus castus, a herbal remedy that works to balance the hormones naturally. You can't use it when using hormonal birth control, though, as it would work against it & you could end up pregnant.
