In brief: One year

I would think that all of the depo would have been out of your system and that you should have started ovulatory cycles again after 1 year. I would say that you have now officially had 1 year of unprotected sex with no pregnancy, giving you an infertility diagnosis.
Now, it's time to look for other causes, starting with semenalysis. If that is good, then the attention turns to you for workup.

In brief: Depends how long dep

It depends how long you have been on depo vera, the longer you have been on depo the longer it takes for normal ovulation to return usually it takes anywhere from 1 year to one and half year for ovulation to return it has been longer for you so you should consult your gynecologist what the cause it and what you can do to get pregnant.
