Hi, thanks for writing! So it’s been about six months since you’ve been off the shot, and you’ve been trying to conceive for 3? That’s not too unusual– it can take more than a year. There is nothing you can take to clear the hormones out faster– they are already out of you if you’re getting a period, but it might take a while for your uterine lining to build up enough to be able to support a pregnancy. In the meantime you can chart your cycles to you know when to try– women are most fertile 24 hours 14 days before the first day of the last period, so to time it right you need to keep track of your cycles for a few months. Good luck!
