Dear M

It is important to realise that following even one dosage of injectable progerstrone contraception such as nuristerate, that your fertility can be impaired for a prolonged time. In some cases this may extend upto 18 months.
However, should you want to "speed up" the chances of conception, I would suggest a low dose of ovulation induction with a drug such as CLOMID - which may then increase the number of follicles or eggs and hence increase your chances of falling pregnant.
Please note that such drugs need to be prescribed by a practitioner and needs to be used at a specific point in your menstrual cycle.
Also, it is important to note that the definition of infertility is the "inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse or after one year of stopping contraception"- and therefore it is too early to determine whether you have a fertility problem or not .
