Dear Sbongile

From the history you have given me I do not think you will have a problem falling pregnant again. You have to bear in mind that you have taken Nur-Isterate injection in April and this Nur-Isterate injection can take between 3 to 4 months to wear out of your body. So effectively you have only been trying for 1 month to fall pregnant. On average most couple will fall pregnant within 6 months, so I think you should only be concerned if you haven’t fallen pregnant sometime next year March or April.
