Unknown: The Depo-Provera shot is very unpredictable. Pregnancy may result immediately or take a year and a half. If you are planning on having a child in the near future Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is not the best choice.

Varies: After stopping any birth control method you will return to whatever fertility level you had before. With pills, the patch, the nuvaring, and iuds fertility returns in about one week. The Depo-Provera shot can take several months and even up to one year.
