In brief: Normal cycles won't

resume until at least 90 days after the last Depo shot.
When your natural cycle resumes, your pre-existing fertility should also return. So, no need to test b4 90 days after the last Depo. shot. After that, test every 4 weeks until period resumes, then test if the next period is late. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne.
