How soon can I get pregnant after going off the shot?

I want to get pregnant soon.

If you’re already on Depo and you’ve decided you want to get pregnant, you’re going to have to wait it out. There’s no way around it. But 12 weeks after your last injection, you’ll be ready to start trying. It may take some time, though. Sometimes it can take up to 10 months after the last shot for fertility to come back completely.

Still not working?

If you think you’d like to become pregnant sometime in the near future, you might want to choose one of the hormonal methods that allows a faster return to fertility, such as the pill, patch, ring, or IUD. You might also consider a non-hormonal method, like male condoms or female condoms.
