In brief: Not likely

Depoprovera is one of the most effective forms of birth control as long as you get the shot every 3 months as directed.
Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect. Failure rates are 1-3%. After stopping it your cycles may take awhile to go back to normal. If you sexually active restart it or use another method.
