Unknown: Periods can be slow to return after stopping depo. Some start immediately after the 3 months. Others take months to return. Your answer will depend in if you have resumed cycles yet or not. Plan b may cause temporary cycle disruption as well. If you do not want to be pregnant you should restart birth control.
