Depo Provera birth control shot

Patient : Hello, I have been on Depo Provera for 2 and a half years now. I get the shot every 3 months. For the last 2 times, right before i got the shot, I have experienced a bit of spotting and bit of moodiness. I just recieved the shot again, just this past Thursday January 22nd. Today is sunday, and i woke up to myself having my period. Never before have i gotten it just a couple days after. Is this normal, or should I be worried?
Symptoms:  Moodiness and stomach cramps
