Contraception
Hi I have been on the 3 month injection Petogen for almost 2 years now. I dont want to have any children just yet but I am concerned whether I will be able to fall pregnant when I am ready. If I have to stop the injection and go on the pill, how will that affect me and what changes can I expect. My next date is in mid April. Please can I have afew suggestions. I am 22 years old and have been on contraception since I got married. Will my fertility rate be increased and is this recommended or should I just continue using the contraception?

The return to fertility after using the injections is about 6 to 9 months. With the pill its almost immediately after stopping.
