A 46-year-old member asked:
when you get off of the depo-provera and you start a period but its just spotting and dark blood, does it mean that you still ovulate? and when would you know?

No: Very difficult to know. The effects of Depo-Provera can last up to 18 months after stopping the shot, especially if you are on it long term. Most women begin having normal periods within 9 months. Only bloodwork and ultrasound can reliably monitor what bis going on.
