4-5 days : You should have a period 4-5 days after stopping progesterone. It is not uncommon for someone how has been on Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to not have normal menses for many months after stopping depo. If you don't bleed within a week of stopping Progesterone you should discuss this with your physician.
