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!
