Dear customer, Thanks for your question. After stopping Depo-Provera, it may take 10 months or more before ovulation to occur again. Since you took it last year, it should not cause any problems now in getting pregnant. Take care.

Dear customer, Yes that is what I wrote, you will not find it hard to get pregnant now since you are now having normal periods and also since it is more than 10 months since your last injection. Take care.

if u have your period every month does this mean your ovulation
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
me and my partner been trying to get pregnant 6 months but I cant get pregnant
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, Thanks for your reply. Your past 6 months fell under the 10 months post depo period hence getting pregnant was difficult. Please continue trying and have patience. You need to maintain a healthy weight, eat a healthy diet and have sex regularly especially near the time of ovulation. With frequent unprotected sex, majority of the healthy couples will conceive within one year. Take care.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, Thanks for your reply. This means that you have a faint line which could mean many things, including that you are pregnant. Please test after few days. If you still get only a faint line then consult your doctor who will do a test to confirm whether you are pregnant or not. Take care.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did a ovulation test
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what does this mean
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, A faint line on an ovulation test indicates that the result is negative. Take care.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
bit am ovulation tomorrow but yesterday I di a ovulation test and their was two dark lines
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, A small amount of LH (which is the hormone wich increases before ovulation and which is being detected in the test) is always present in your urine. Hence the faint line. Your LH was increased yesterday and has come down today. This is normal. Take care.

Dear customer, Yes you should start taking it again. Take care.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what r benefits of taking folic acid
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, Since it is a new question which is unrelated to the original question you may have to rate my answer again. Folic acid will help prevent neural tube defects, and serious abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord in the newborn. Folic acid supplementation has also been shown to decrease the risk of preterm delivery. Folic acid, taken in supplement form starting at least one month before conception and then continuing to take it through the first trimester of pregnancy, greatly reduces the risk of spina bifida and other neural tube defects. Take care. Please rate the answer with a positive rating. Thanks.

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 2 years ago.
Dear customer, Prenatal vitamins are available over-the-counter and you can buy them and start taking them yourself. Just inform your doctor next time you consult him/her. Please rate the answer with a positive rating. Thanks.
