Our expert says:
It is not unusual for the effects of Depo Provera to persist for up to 2 years after stopping treatment. This may present as dysfunctional uterine bleeding (irregular vaginal bleeding) or in the form of ovulation dysfunction. However before trying to correct the ovulation problem it will still be important to rule out other concomitant factor responsible for infertility such as semen analysis and tubal patency evaluation. If all other factors are within normal limits then ovulation induction can be induced either by using oral preparations such as Fertomid, Clomid Serophene etc or if necessary by a combination of oral preparations and injections. Occasionally a 3-month course of the oral contraceptive pill may be valuable in returning the hormone system back to its normal cyclical pattern following which ovulation may occur spontaneously and natural conception would therefore be possible.
