It can take anywhere from days to 18 months for your period to return after stopping Depo Provera. Taking the Birth Control pill doesn't change that timing -- the birth control pill doesn't "jump start" or "regulate" your period after stopping Depo Provera. Remember that you can get pregnant before your period restarts, so if you don't want to conceive right now, get on an effective method of birth control.

After either changing or stopping with the use of birth control pills, it is quite common to have a result such as brown or even darker period.

Got off birth control at the end of April and have not had a period in a month in a half?

Depending on the type of birth control and how long you were taking it before stopping it can take up to 18 months for your cycles to return to normal. I personally was on depoprovera for 2 years after my first child and after stopping did not menstruate for 13 months afterwords. Later I went back on depo for about a year and it took six months for my periods to begin again after stopping that time. If you are sexually active you should probably take a pregnancy test every two months until your periods begin again as you will ovulate about 2 weeks before your first period and could conceive at that time without realizing it.
