What are the side effects of stopping the contraceptive injection?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/09/2022

The main side effect that can occur when the contraceptive injection is stopped is that fertility may not be restored immediately, but it can take up to 10-12 months for the woman to recover it.

On the other hand, the ideal is to consult with the specialist how long to wait until trying to achieve gestation after using the contraceptive injection, in order to avoid any possible risk for the baby.
