... I'm now taking the inactive pills but I'm not bleeding. what could be wrong?
I was on Depo for almost 18 years, with a few breaks of up to 2 yrs in between (it's not recommended for long-term permanent use, without any breaks at all, unless you've no other option).
Even one injection of Depo can de-regulate your bleeding pattern for quite some time after you miss the next shot.
People who've had a few Depo shots can find it takes up to 18 months for their periods to settle back into a regular pattern. It also depends on the regularity of your cycle prior to using Depo. If it wasn't all that regular before then it may not be after.
You need to continue to see you family planning clinic or Doctor, to follow their advice on this situation. You should rule out any possibility that you may have become pregnant when not covered by Depo, if you have not already checked that.
I have a feeling that you will find it is just a time issue, as most former Depo users experience.
However, I have no experience of the use of Ovral, which is why I recommend keeping regular checks with your clinic.
