Like Arielle said, everyone is different. My Mum fell pregnant straight away after coming off the pill with me when all her friends were taking a year to fall pregnant.
It all depends on how quickly your body gets rid of the hormones.

Most women do have a wait time after getting off Depo, but everyone is different. You could very well be pregnant. Get a test.

I have been off the shot for 3 years now and in that I have conceived once which sadly ended in a miscarry. Even following the fertility calculator does not seem to work. Have been to the Drs can't help until 1 yr has passed between TTC & the miscarry or I've had 3. So kinda stuck. So everyone's different. Good luck

I had such pain with a ruptured ovarian cyst I thought I had an ectopic pregnancy.

It definitely can happen.. I got pregnant with twins after 2-3 weeks of getting off depo.. everyone is different.. like most have already said.. if you have symptoms of pregnancy, even though you got your TOM, you probably should get tested...

I know I was just asking only because I have been on the deop shot for 5 yrs and I have heard it can take a yr for the to get out of your system

If you are not on BC and having unprotected sex then yes you can fall pregnant.
You can either test a HPT or go and see your doctor. We have no idea what is going on with you.
