Newbie, with ovulation after depo question....

Hi All,

I have posted a hello post on the Newbie thread and have searched to see if there are any other threads on this subject but cant seem to find any ?...........

I have been TTC #3 since June, i can off the Depo in March and only got my first AF on 10th Nov but since then i have had another AF on 25th Nov and started spotting again yesterday???

I have been bbt charting since june and haven't been oving at all in that time. My AF came back after i started taking Agnus Castus but as explained above then i started bleedin 2 weeks later and again yesterday.

I am aware that it can take a year to 'get back to normal' after the depo but i wanted to see if anyone else had experiences like this that i can compare too?

Hi mumof two
I've posted a welcome on your other thread but i did a search and found this thread which i think may be useful as it has advice on coming off depo injections and on using agnus castus :smile:Agnus castus

Hmmmm... Actually, it can take up to 2 years to ovulate after Depo - or so we were taught at our "family planning advisor" training course...
Unfortunately I have zero knowledge of Agnus Castus though...

and I wasn't actually ovulating 3 years after coming off depo injections, despite having regular periods.

I started ovulating after an IVF cycle but don't know if it was the drugs, acupuncture or the agnus cactus I took after the cycle failed.

Hope this helps

Hi and welcome

I was on the depo injection for about 10 years and my periods never returned to normal after coming off it. We sought assistance after a year of trying. I didn't have any periods the whole of time I was on it.

I've read varying accounts of when your periods could/should return after stopping it and when you might regain your fertility.


ttc since July 06. 8 cycles of clomid. BFP on cycle 5 (Dec 07) ended in m/c at 9.5 weeks. Second BFP on cycle 8 (May 08)
