Hi Micky
It all depends on your body- we have found on this website that everybody is indeed different and reacts differently to things.
I know that the general answer is anything from 4-6 months and that you can take up to 2 years to conceive if you have been on this kind of contraception.
HOWEVER, I was on the 2 month injection, nuristerate and had my period the very first month after I was supposed to go back for another shot, and I fell pregnant after another cycle.
So, there is hope and it all depends on how you react to being off it.

Take care and all the best
