I was on the Depo-Provera shot for 6 months how long after that would I start my period?

90 days: Depo is typically given once every 3 months for birth control because it has a 90 day therapeutic range. If you got the shot 2 times (at the beginning and 3 months later) you were covered for 6months.Then most women will ovulate and have a period in the 90 days after the last shot's therapeutic range. For example, #1 shot sept 1st, #2 shot dec 1st, then expect a period mar-may. Some start later. ...Read more

Anytime you like: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
