In brief: Abnormal cycles

Although you had your first period last month since the Depo "wore off" your cycles can still be a little abnormal as your body readjusts to not having the full dose Depo any longer.It can take up to 12 months for you to establish more normal and predictable cycles again,but if having unprotected sex would recommend still checking HPT's or even blood HCG levels if suspicious for pregnancy.

This is because it takes about 12 months for Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to leave your body entirely.
