Yes: If it's been more than 3 months since your last Depo-Provera shot and your periods have returned to normal, it's possible to get pregnant. It's possible before that, but definitely by then, if you are trying to conceive, i recommend "taking charge of your fertility" by toni weschler. She also has a website, tcoyf.Com.
