Injection does affect the pregnancy itself. So even the results are not out of it. Go for a serum hcg test as it is more sensitive rather than a urine pregnancy test.

If you are having doubts along with the pregnancy test you can get a untrasound of the abdomen and pelvis. This will rule out pregnancy if there is not any. It wil also rule out abberant sites of implantation if any. I would advise you to consult a gynecologist in this regard as some times depo can cause less bleeding, spotting etc. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
