May be immediate : Some women ovulate the first month after stopping hormonal contraception, like the ring or pill or patch. Some women take a couple months to start ovulating again. However if you did not ovulate regularly before being on nuva ring, do not expect that you will start ovulating regularly now

Wait until 2 periods: Depo is a great form of birth control, but an unfortunate thing is that it takes a while to get out of your system. It can take 6-8 months from the injection. If you have 2 normal periods, then it should be out. The problem is, you don't know when the first period will happen. Use barrier contraception until you have had those periods, as the drug is category x for pregnancy, with known fetal risk

SOON: Everyone is different, but generally speaking off Depo-Provera for 2-3 months, you should start trying now. Best wishes.

Immediately: You can get pregnant the same month after you stop the bcp's. If you are three months i would now recommend making sure you know when you ovulate by doing basal body temperature chart or ovulation test and time intercourse right after you ovulate. If no success, see your gyn.
