Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that the effects of depo can last for up to 18 months. IF your cycle resumes and your periods are regular, that suggests that your baseline fertility has resumed. It is also possible to conceive before the first period, since ovulation takes place before menstruation. There is no reason NOT to try. Good luck! Dr B
