    I took depo for a year. Last sep 2010 I quit my depo, so its been 8 months, i have bled irregularly the whole time on & off it. yesterday i stopped bleeding although my periods last longer than before(it lasts maybe 2 weeks) do I still have a good chance at getting pregnant? i know it can take up to 18 months but me and my husband are so sick of waiting!

    Check in with your health care provider. Most people stabilize sooner than this coming off of depo-provera, I would not wait 18 months.
