Welcome to ehealthforum.
It usually takes 1-3 month time for your normal fertility to return. Sometimes you can start ovulating right after stopping with the depo shot or not taking the next due shot.
Since your periods are delayed by almost 2 months you could already be pregnant. Report to your healthcare provider/gynecologist to see if you are already pregnant by getting a blood beta HCG test and ultrasound scan.
Take care.
