Hard to tell: The median time to conception and/or return to ovulation following discontinuation of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is 10 months after the last injection. However, it can be as long as 18 months after. During this time you might experience irregular bleeding so it would be extremely difficult to judge when you might be ovulating.
