I got the contraceptive implant fitted in October 2012 and had it removed in February 2014. After that I was on the contraceptive patch for under 3 months then switched method again to the contraceptive injection. The day after my injection I bled and this continued until week 9 of having the injection in my system. Due to the bleeding my health nurse prescribed me the contraceptive pill to stop the bleeding as it was interfering with everyday life. My injection is due to run out on 18th July 2014. Im 18 years old, my periods are usually so regular I can time them to the exact time they will come on. After my injection runs out me and my partner are hoping on starting a family soon (we have been together for 2 years and have all the support we and our baby could need), however after reading online I've found myself thinking "what's the point" after reading how it could take up to a year to conceive. How soon after the contraceptive injection runs out would I be able to get pregnant? I was told as soon as the next day, others have said 4 weeks, others 4 months. Arghhh helpppppp!
