Taking depo provera, want to conceive. How to conceive?

How soon after stopping the Depo Provera shot can a woman conceive?
Mu husband and I are trying for another baby and I cancelled my next shot which would have been this month.
I started November of 2012 on the Depo Provera shot, and went every 3 months. So I only had 2 shots total.
Let me know what my chances are, thank you:)

Dear scarletletter1990,
Depomedroxyprogesterone acetate (depoprovera) persists in the body for several months after stoppage and so return to fertility may be delayed.
70% of users get pregnant within 12 months and 90% within 24 months after stopping the injections.
If you are not in a hurry you may wait for pregnancy to occur spontaneously, but this may take time as mentioned so do not worry about that.
If you don't want to wait much so consult your doctor in order to start evaluating your condition and start ovulation induction if feasible.
I hope this piece of information was useful to you and I hope you get pregnant soon.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
