I had my nexplanon removed on November 20, 2014 after having it for 15 months due to not liking all the side effects associated with it and haven't gotten my menstrual cycle. I'm in no other form of birth control and my husband and I are not using condoms nor are we trying to get pregnant. I just wanted to know if it was normal for it to take so long
How long until menstrual cycle returns after nexplanon removal?

I got mine removed July 17 and I haven’t been sexually active... so I’m definitely not pregnant or anything. But I am worried about when my period will come. I used to get really heavy and awful periods but then I got morbidly obese so I just went on it until I lost a lot of weight. Idk, I’m kinda freaking out. I read that you should have your period within two months or something:(
To be honest I think all birth control should be made illegal apart from condoms because a lot of women including me have had horrible side effects with birth control when I was on the implant i had sore breasts day in day out no matter what I did ,headaches even though I was drinking plenty of water ,moodwings , depression even though I was taking my anti depressants every day sore itchy skin tbh i would rather have a heavy period as a period only lasts a few days every month this implant lasts for a few years
I got pregnant within 2 weeks of having mine removed. I never got my period back before I got pregnant. Is there a chance you are pregnant already?
Hi i only want to respond because i also had the nexplanon removed about 3 weeks before you and also had it for about a year and a half. I also have not gotten my period since, its been about four months now and i am wondering if you finally got your period on tract or if you went, and how you went about, to get help from a doctor. Thanks
You can get pregnant even if you don't have a period. I'd see my dr, at this point, since its more then a year. They may have to jump start you.
