You need testing...: The Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection should not be stopping your periods after 10 months. You may not be ovulating for some other reason. There is a long list of causes for this such as PCOS, thyroid problems, stress, dieting, extreme exercise, etc. Figuring it out may require blood tests etc. You should see an Ob/Gyn for evaluation. Best wishes.
