Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

After taking the Deposhots it is common to complain of menstrual irregularities as it causes hormonal imbalance in the body. Many woman even have completely absent periods.
Since you did not repeat the second shot pregnancy possibility is always associated if you have been performing unprotected intercourse.

It is not possible to know when the periods would start and whether you have been ovulating without a physical examination and some tests to rule out hormonal derangements or pregnancy.

Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for detailed evaluation. If hormonal imbalance is detected you might be prescribed medications for inducing periods.

Take care!
