Depo Provera is effective birth control for 3 months. I'm not sure how long it takes to completely leave your system.  You may want to contact your doctor, tell him/her of your complaints and decide on another birth control option when it's time you can make the switch. Best wishes!

I used to be on depo, and doc told me that you can get pregnant if you don't return for the shot in time before the 3 months is up. So I believe 3 mnths is the length of time.
