User Profile
Hi,

I have been off the depo injection for 6 months now and my partner and I want to try for a baby but I have had no sign of any periods yet. Is there anything I can do or take to help?

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.

After stopping the Depo-Provera injections, the periods usually return within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths.

Hence, you’ll need to have a little more patience as it may take a little more time for the periods to return. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
