Going off the injection

I've been on the injection (3 month injection) for 8 years. My husband and I would like to try for a baby. I've been advised to go onto the pill to try and bring my periods back quicker. I've also been advised that this will take about 3 months. Is this time frame to start receiving my periods again, correct?? Once I start receiving it, should I wait about 3 months before leaving the pill or should I stay on the pill a bit longer before trying for a baby??

The time till your periods return is unpredictable. If you do take the Pill, you can stop as soon as your periods are regular.

Normally after the injection it takes about a year for ur periods to return. I have heard of the pill helping to regulate your cycle again i would give it at least 3 months on the pill and see what happens with your periods returning.
