no period on injection

me and my bf went to the clinic to ask about contraceptives cos we're thinking bout having sex.
we decided the injection would be the best option and the sister said my periods would be as normal and come every 4 weeks as usual.

we have not had sex yet but i have not had my period in over a month. there's no way i'm pregnant, but does the injection perhaps delay your period for the first couple of weeks or what?
also on your sex website you said it might cause amennorreah, but the sister did not tell me this.
is it possible?

thank u for ur help

80% of women on the injection do not have periods. You should have been told about this.
