Welcome to HealthcareMagic. If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. I suggest that you consult your gynecologist and get yourself examined to rule out other causes of such symptoms like pregnancy. Although rare to have pregnancy with Depo shots, but failure cases are not uncommon.

Please get an examination done from your gynecologist. Hope it helps you. Regards.
