Would it be safe to take any fertility supplements to help with getting pregnant after getting off birth control(depo)?It's been 4 mnths since I had my last depo shot and I'm more than ready to conceive,but I'm still not seeing my periods yet.
What should I do?Try the fertility supplements to see if it helps or wait a little longer until I start ovulating?

  • The doctor will advice not to pursue infertility measures until you have been trying to get pregnant for 12 months and have not yet concieved. 80% of couple conceive within a year and 90% conceive within two years. I am sure that your body just needs to readjust after stopping the contraception. My sister said she didn't start having periods for almost a year (and she has had 2 children since then). I think I started having them again about 6 months after I stopped the medicine. My advice is to just keep trying and no fertility supplements are necessary. What you could do is buy the basal body thermometer (a special thermometer) and measure your temperature every morning before you get out of bed and when you have a rise in temperature it is an indication of ovulation, have intercourse in the next 24 hours or so. Really though just relax and let nature take its course (don't stress because stress can actually delay periods) and have fun practicing ;)
