I've had intercourse a lot after that and never used a condom but never went inside me. I've gained weight these couple of months it seems. Is not having my period normal?
It can take up to 18 months to regain your fertility again after stopping Depo, but you could also ovulate without realising, before you notice your first period. I have heard of many people getting accidentally pregnant because they assumed they weren't fertile just because they hadn't seen a period.
We ovulate before we have a period, so you can never be sure that you are still temporarily infertile due to the Depo still being partially in your system.
