Welcome tuner_2088 and thanks for posting!

Unfortunately as you've discovered, it can take quite a long time for normal cycles to resume after Depo. Here is Nurse Jane's blog post on Getting Pregnant after Depo Provera .

Since it's now been over a year since she got off Depo, I would suggest she talk with her doctor. He or she may be able to help regulate her cycles and also determine whether or not she's ovulating. This Ovulation and TTC (trying to conceive) Tips slideshow may be helpful, too.

Give us and update and let us know how you're doing.

Baby dust!
