Pregnancy: Everyone's body is different - you may start ovulating within 3-6 months of stopping Depo or sooner, hard to say. Unprotected sex can result in pregnancy, so take a pregnancy test is you have missed a period and did not use a form of birth control.

Both: This is extremely variable. Return to fertility can take over a year or conception can occur as soon as the next month. Overall there is a delay but it varies widely from person to person.

Agree. The longest time to resume cycling I am aware of is 2 full years.
