I was on the Depo-Provera shot for 3 months how long does it take for my period to come down?

Up to a year. Most women will get their period again within 6 months of stopping Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). The manufacturer recommends you stop using this method of birth control a year before you plan to get pregnant however. The reason for this being that it can mess up the timing of periods for up to a year after stopping.

How to tell if I am not getting pregnant if I inject Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) 3days after my menstrual period?

Usually not. A good time to get the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection is during or right after the period, because it is very unlikely a woman will be pregnant when having a normal period. The shot takes several days to take effect, so by 4 days after the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection a woman should not be able to get pregnant.

Can u tell me how long will it take me to come on my period I been on da Depo-Provera shots for 3months I been off it for 5months and still no period?

Should be soon. Typically I tell patients that cycles should resume by 6 months, but I've had patients up to a year. You might want to see your doctor. I notice that you are on blood pressure medication, sometimes women who have early cardiovascular disease, also are at risk for pcos which can mean absence of period. If you are heavy (calculate your bmi online) that can also be a cause for no period. See md.

How long could it take for me to get my period after getting off Depo-Provera shot? And can I get fertility drugs to help me get pregnant faster?

Up to 9 months. You possibly might not see a period for 9 months from your last shot, although it is usually quicker. This assumes your periods were regular before you started the Depo. Fertility drugs are not appropriate in this situation and would be of marginal benefit even if you could find someone who would prescribe them.
