Birth Control Shot and Bleeding

I've recieved a depo provera (birth control) shot for the first time and i'm due for a new shot as of today. I haven't had a period the entire time I was on the shot but the past three weeks i've been bleeding. In the first week I had a thick piece of skin (a decidual cast) come out of my vagina when I took out a tampon. After that happened the bleeding stopped for a few days and then started again. I get random sharp pains in my lower abdomen area and sometimes in my vagina area too. I called my clinic and they said this is normal. But it seems odd to me. Has anyone else had this problem? What should I do?
