Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. The effects of the depo provera may last after several months after the last injection. The decrease in the sex drive and non return of the periods is likely due to the effects of the depo provera which remains in the body for 6-12 months after the last injection. However, the periods will return. You should use the following natural methods for a rapid removal of the synthetic hormone from the body. Drink lots of water every day, eat lots of fresh raw vegetables, drink raw vegetable juice, sweat in a steam room or sauna, get lots of exercise and fresh air.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
