want a baby
i used nustate injection for about 4 years and i stoped it last year october and nothing is happening. i have visited a doctor and he gave me fertomid and they did not work. i spoke to the nurse this morning over the phone and suggested that i come and they will give me the contraceptive pills to use for only three months and there after i stop and i will fall pregnant. i am asking myself that will those pills not complicate my cyle even worse because i am looking forward to fall pregnant not to prevent a baby any more. please advise me. i really dont want to use contraceptives anymore but if it was the one that will increase my chances of falling pregnant it was fine. i am very much frastrated because its close to a year trying for a baby.

It can take up to a year for the injection to work out of your system and it can then take a further year before you conceive. (Have a look at the Top 5 questions). Unfortunately this often just requires patience. You are right that the Pill may mix up your cycle further.
