fertility and depo

Is there any natural ways to bring on ovulation after being on depo for 4yrs??

been off of depo for 2months now.. the week after i was supposed to have my shot i had like a small period that last for 3-4days, but it was very light, had no other sign of a real period, and according to my ovulation tests no ovulation either.. just wanted to know of any natural ways to make my cycle come back

Re: fertility and depo

It can take months or even years before your cycles return to normal. I would see a doctor for intervention if you don't see any improvements within 6 months or so.

Re: fertility and depo

Taking Vitex (chaste tree berry) may help regulate your cycles. Mine are still not normal (extremely light periods) and that is 7 months off the pill although I am ovulating. I've heard Depo is much worse than the pill for your body, so there is no telling. Also, if you want to track whether or not you ovulate, you might look into basal body temperature taking. Much cheaper than buying ovulation tests...all you need is a basal thermometer and to be sure to check your cervical fluid for signs that you might be ovulating soon (it most resembles uncooked eggwhite then). Just google fertility awareness method or FAM--a lot of women use this to become pregnant or, in my case, to avoid pregnancy.
