Quite variable: The time between coming off Depo-Provera and resuming normal ovulation can be highly variable. Some women will start ovulating 3-4 months after a shot. Others can take a year. At your age, you also need to consider the possibility that you may be peri-menopausal, which would make ovulations less regular.

Depends on Age: The chance of pregnancy in any given month in a young, healthy, fertile women is 20% - 25% per month. At age 43, odds are quite a bit lower, around 9% per month. If you want to get pregnant at age 43, I would consider seeing an Ob/Gyn or Reproductive Endocrinologist because time is not in your favor. Best wishes!

Are you able to get pregnant after getting off of depo?

Yes!: Yes! Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) does not prevent you from becoming pregnant once you discontinue it, but unlike birth control pills, it will last for 3 months after your last injection. After that time, it is possible to become pregnant!
