Maybe, not likely: the Depo lasts 3 months, but usually 4, especially if you were on it for a while. so, it is really not likely but NOT IMPOSSIBLE that your ovaries woke up! take a urine test in one week or a blood test ordered by your doc in 5 days should tell you Y or N!! good luck!

Same Medication: Depo Provera and Petegen are basically the same medication. You shouldn't notice a big difference switching from one to the other. Best wishes!
