I was on the depo shot for 2 years, been off of it for over a month now. What can I do to help, or speed up the progress of getting pregnant?

Patience, patience, patience.

Patience, patience, patience. Depo shots may take longer to “wear off” than other forms of birth control. Some In fact, it is often recommended to wait at least six months after the last shot before trying to get pregnant anyway so the hormones are out of your system. As long as the hormones from the Depo Provera shot are still in your system, then Clomid won't usually work. Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss preconception counseling to make sure you spend the next few months doing everything you can to make your body baby-friendly.
