In brief: Amenorrhea
Amenorrhea (no periods) may last up to 1 year after a depo-provera injection.
The fact it has lasted more than a year requires a work-up. You may have pcos (poly-cystic ovary disease) which causes chronic amenorrhea. Please see your gyn/primary care for blood tests and possible ultrasound. They may want to give 10 days of a Progesterone challenge.
