I was able to express some milk for a full year after I weaned. Some women it happens quicker (especially if on estrogen birth control or pregnant) others much longer.

It can take years to dry up.

Ev en if you breastfed for one day. It can take a year or longer.

Depo doesn't impact supply. You have to be on full estrogen to lose your milk instantly. Yaz, for example.

Depo doesn't have estrogen so it won't likely do anything to hasten your milk drying up. How long has it been since you weaned?

Depo doesn't contain estrogen. It can take months to dry up completely.
