When will the Depo-Provera shot wear off?

3 months. Depo provides effective birth control for three months. After the three months, it is no longer an effective form of birth control, but some side effects, such as irregular periods, can last another six months.
Up to 18 months. The number 1 side effect of the depo-provera is irregular and unpredicable bleeding. The shot is virtually guaranteed to give excellent contraception for three months, but it may last for up to 18 months - even after only one injection. If your periods have not normalized after 18 months, then its time to see your doctor.
Depends. Depends in how many shots/how long you've been using it. Could be as long as a year or so for longtime users. Not a problem except for those who want to get pregnant.

3 months to 2 years. as there is variability depending on each individual patient. I would not recommend being pregnant at 16. At least finish your high school education or consider a vocational/technical school to give your future child a life with financial stability to be able to adequately provide for his or her needs. The average cost to raise a child from birth to age 18 is $241,080. Read more...

Up to a year. Unfortunately, a couple of depo shots may hang around in your system for up to a year. If you are having some irregular periods, then at least that says your system is "waking up" from being put to sleep... It is difficult to say whether or not you are having ovulatory cycles -- you could be now, but just with irregular periods. This will eventually straighten out. Read more...

Healthy living. Over the next 3 months as your shot effectiveness wanes, start getting your body in excellent health. Eat right, start taking Folate (folic acid) supplement & exercise daily, don't get any STD's. Then when the time is right, your body will be most receptive to a pregnancy. Then you leave it up to God and sex to create life. Even without having been on a contraceptive, it is normal to take a year to conceive. Read more...

Is she having period. A single depo-provera injection just protects from pregnancy for 3 months, however it can disrupt the menstrual cycle for up to a year.

We always warn patients that it may take up to a year to be fertile again after a depo shot. Read more...
