I'm on Depo-Provera shot and spot always. I had sex 14 days ago. Spotting stopped at day 7-9 started again with clots and light flow. Would a hpt be positive?

In brief: Bleeding on Depoprovera is highly variable.

There is no normal time for your period on this birth control  method.
Most have no periods. Some have irregular bleeding. Irregular bleeding can be annoying but it does not mean that the method is not working. This side effect is very typical of Progesterone only birth control methods.
