I just recieved my first depo shot, please help

I am 17 years old and i just recieved my first depo shot on friday. I was only about 2 days away from my period but the doctor said that was ok. I didnt tell her i was sexually active bc i dont like how it looks only being 17. Ive only been having sex for like 2 months and been extremely careful. She gave me a pregnancy test and it came back negative but i never got my period and its now sunday, but if i dont get it is there something wrong because i heard girls dont get there period after the shot. plus my doctor didnt warn me about any bad side effects but blood clots and ive noticed a bunch of women complaning online... please help
