How long can you stay on the depo?

Loss of calcium may lead to osteoporosis and could increase your risk of a bone fracture. This effect is greater the longer you use the drug and may not be completely reversible. You shouldn't use Depo-Provera as a long-term birth control method (longer than two years) unless other methods are not suitable.

How long does it take to get pregnant after the Depo Provera shot?

For some women, it can take up to a year after the last shot to begin having regular periods, but for others it can happen as soon as four months after the last shot. In one large study, the average time to get pregnant after discontinuing Depo-Provera was ten months.
