I previously had 2 babies in 2010 & 2012 went on the Depo-Provera shot from Feb to Aug 2014. 3 shots injected. It's been 5 months no period or pregnancy. Why?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Depo

it can take up to 1 year after the last shot for you to have a period.
median time to conception is usually 10 months.

If you are trying to get pregnant, you should be taking prenatal vitamins daily. It also may be helpful to chart any symptoms of ovulation. Best of luck!

In brief: Lingers

depoprovera must be used every 3 months to prevent pregnancy effectively.
Once you stop taking it it slowly begins to wear of. Some go back to normal immediately but others can take up to one year to ovulate and return to normal cycles
