How Long After Quitting Depo-Provera Injections Can a Woman Become Pregnant?

If you are using Depo-Provera® (medroxyprogesterone intramuscular injection) and are thinking about having a child, you may be wondering how long it takes to become pregnant after quitting Depo-Provera injections.
 
Depo-Provera is a long-acting medication, which means it can take months for this drug to be removed from the bloodstream. If you want to become pregnant, you will have to wait until your last shot has worn off, which can take many months. Research has suggested that the average time to getting pregnant is 10 months after quitting Depo-Provera injections, with a majority of women able to get pregnant within 12 months. However, some women may not be able to conceive for several years.
