Hello, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

After you stop depot shots, the periods can continue or they can stop. Same is for ovulation—you may ovulate or you may not. Normally the periods and ovulation regulate and become regular by 6 months. During this time you can ovulate and not have periods, have periods and not ovulate or not have both or have both. So, it is difficult to assess whether in your case it is due to coming off the shot or pregnancy. Take a blood HCG estimation 14 days after you have been sexually active. Take care!!
