Welcome to ehealthforum.
The normal fertility to return after stopping the depo shot can take anywhere between 1 month to 1 year. You can start planning for your pregnancy after you get your periods post stopping with the depo shot.
To speed up the process, consult an Infertility specialist who will aid you in getting your ovulation back on track faster.
All the best.
