It's possible that you could be pregnant, but it can take up to 18 months to become pregnant after stopping Depo.
What sorted my fertility out & got me back in to a regular cycle, was a herbal remedy called Agnus Castus. The brand I use is A. Vogel. It's a tincture (liquid form) that you put into a little water & drink twice daily. It doesn't taste very nice, but it had me back into a regular pattern in a month, & I was able to drop it down to once per day. You should be able to stop it all together once your periods are back in cycle.
There are no side effects with AC.
I'd had loads of medical interventions to try to get my cycle back, & they all failed. This was the only thing that worked, & I wish I'd known about it sooner.
You can't use it if you are on any form of hormonal birth control, as AC works to rebalance your hormones, so it will work against any medication that is trying to knock your hormones out of balance, so that you that don't become pregnant.
