Hi there, I realised the previous question regarding the injection. I am on the 3 months injection and have been on it for about 4 years on end. If I wanted to try for another baby would this be impossible or will it take very long for me to conceive. I understand that you cannot tell exactly but if you can just give me an idea of approximate time. Thank you in advance.

Dear Jess

It can take anything up to 2 years before normal ovulation and conception is restored after even a single dose of the 3monthly injection. However to speed matters up you can consider ovulation induction from an early stage after stopping contraception and this will promote return to ovulation.
