Hello from JustAnswer.
When did you receive the Depo shot?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
I had asked for some further information and have not heard back.
If you have the Depo shot shortly before starting to try to conceive, it would have affected most of this 6 month period of time and you would clearly not need any evaluation at this point.
If the Depo shot was long before this 6 month period, o that it would not have an effect on this 6 month period, then the only issue is the 6 month period, and the previous Depo shot does not enter into the consideration.
For most couples, an infertility evaluation would be considered only after 12 months of trying to conceive. However, there are some circumstances in which an evaluation at 6 months may be reasonable. The most common reason is for couples that previously had difficulty conceiving. It also may be worth considering an evaluation in couples that are somewhat older, as there is only so many years if fertility, and the fertility specialists may be less likely to desire a full 12 month trial of conception by natural means.

I has depo March 2014 and I was due my second shot of depo due on June 2014 but I didn't have it done in got my period October 2014 only for one day and then got my peroid again December 2014 and got my peroid again March 2015 and April got a normal period up to September this month
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
The fact that you missed some periods for several months after the anticipated Depo shot was not taken is not a concern. The periods for the last 6 months, though, might warrant further evaluation.
If by normal period up to September, you mean that you were having monthly periods from March 2015 until September, then this does not warrant any further evaluation.
However, if you mean that you did not have another normal period after April 2015 until September, that would be more of a concern, and it would be appropriate for you to be seen.

I had a normal period April 2015 to September 2015How long will it talk for me to get pregnant
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
It is impossible to know. The reason that an infertility evaluation is typically not done until a couple has tried for a year, as I said above, is because some normal couples can take up to a year to get pregnant. Most will get pregnant in the first 6 months, but it is partly just random luck whether a couple will get pregnant quickly or not.

How long do u get pregnant after one shot of depo
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
The Depo shot has nothing to do with it at this point. The period of time up to a year is for all normal couples.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What u mean
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
The Depo shot is likely the reason for the abnormal menstrual patterns though March of 2015, but since the periods have been regular since then, the effect of the Depo shot is past and is no longer an issue. You are now subject to the statistics of getting pregnant just like every other normal couple, and it may take up to a year.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What about my fertility
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
There is no reason to assess your fertility until you have tried for a year from when the periods were regular again in March/April 2015.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is Is possible i could get pregnant now I got aches and pains
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
Yes. Aches and pains typically will not cause infertility.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So could I be pregnant
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
If your period is late, then you could be pregnant.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Do u mean I can be pregnant December this month
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
This month is not December. However, you could potentially get pregnant any month.
