Having : Having two periods in one month after stopping depoprovera does not mean that you are infertile. When you are on depo, your ovulation stops. Now your body is re-starting your cycle, so you are having irregular bleeding. You are most likely starting to ovulate again. If you continue to have irregular bleeding, or this doesn't resolve, please have an examination.
