Depo shot

My last depo shot was November 25 of 2012 how long before I will have a period because I have not had one yet and my boyfriend and I want to have a baby

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that depo can have effects for up to eighteen months after the last injection.  It could still be that depo is delaying your period.  You could also check in with your doctor, sometimes some progesterone will start the period and "jump start" your cycles.  Sometimes you just have to wait it out.
Good luck!
