Reply to Depo-Vera Shot

It’s different for everyone. I have been on depo on and off for 15 years. It has always worked great for me. I have a 3 year old daughter and we are now currently trying for baby number 2. I got my last shot back in July, so by October it had worn off and I got my first period. I get regular periods every month and my body went right back to normal. It does take most women about 10 months to a year after their last shot to get pregnant. It could potentially take up to 2 years but that usually isn’t the case. I never had any problems with the shot. It always stopped my periods completely and I loved how easy it was just going and getting a shot every 11 weeks. But it doesn’t always work out great for every woman. But that goes for ANY other birth control also. Works great for some and not for others.
