Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.
The depo shot is associated with more irregular cycles for the first few months after it has "worn off". It actually lasts longer than 3 months, so it probably is not completely out of your system. Your chance of pregnancy within the 6-12 months is slightly less than the average because of this cycle irregularity, but this should resolve over the year.
I hope that this helps and good luck!
