I got my second shot February 4th and never returned for another shot because i wanted to try to conceive my second child. I got my period with in 1 week of not returning for my new shot. There was no sever cramping and everything went really smooth.
I have been tracking my BBT since May 3rd and it says my estimated ovulation date is Sunday May 13th. This is apparently my fertile week as my cervix seems to be located high, soft, and my mucus was creamy until today when i noticed it was watery.
Normally when i have sex semen has a tendency to run back out when i stand or even sit but today there was no leakage and i know he orgasmed inside me. I orgasmed as well
Do my chances of conceiving look promising since i have heard alot of cases of woman taking the depo and having issues conceiving?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The changes in cervix position, cervical mucus characteristics, and BBT suggest fertile period and intercourse during this time could result in pregnancy if your fertility and ovulation has returned back to normal immediately after stopping with Depo shot. Your fertility/ovulation to return can take a few months to upto a year’s time after stopping with Depo shot. If you are trying for pregnancy, monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. If you have also orgasmed, and if the ejaculation occurred in position of deep penetration, it is possible that the semen was sucked inside due to uterine and vaginal contractions aiding in sperms to swim upwards (which could be the reason that there was no leakage). Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
