Depends: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will stay in your system at least three months. Taking other pills or medications doesn't change that unfortunately. The effects of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) (no period) can last longer, even up to a year. However, taking the pill should help return you to normal cycles.
