I haven't had my period since March 2013 had my son Dec 2013 and immediately had the arm implant birth control. Is it normal to not at all had a period for almost a year. And I've been tired lately and this morning g started feeling really anxious.
Nexplanon is is said to be more effective than birth control pills so you should be protected. Also, while I had Nexplanon I went several months without getting a period and I was told it is pretty normal.
As for your fatigue and anxiety, have you considered seasonal affective disorder? It is very common once the temperature drops and daylight patterns change. Increased anxiety is normal with seasonal affective disorder. Also, you should look at any changes in your life recently that have been causing you extra stress. Medications for generalized anxiety are helpful if you find yourself worrying a lot or just stressed.
If you are really concerned with what you are experiencing you should definitely consult a doctor for more information.
