The depo shot lasts for 3 months and then some. So any bleeding you're having now is likely due to the depo shot. Bleeding while on the shot is common, especially early when starting it, but also not uncommon later. You can be sure you're not ovulating, because the depo shot is keeping you from ovulating. As long as you don't have another shot, your ovulation will gradually return, but sometimes it takes a number of months after the depo wears off. Since you're in a hurry to get pregnant, I would consider seeing an OB/GYN doctor, who may be able to give you Clomid pills, which will help you to ovulate sooner than you might normally. Or you could be patient. Hopefully you would start to ovulate in the next 3 months, but it could be longer. Best wishes.
