can you ovulate without getting your period?
another question... is it normal to be off the injection for about 1-2 months, and not have any periods yet?

Yes, it can take up to a year after stopping the injection before your periods return. This is because it thins the lining of the uterus and it has to regrow. You can ovulate before you start having periods again.
