After I had my second child I got on birth control for the first time in my life. The birth control method I am using is nexplanon. The nexplanon is implanted in my arm. Well ever since I got the nexplanon I have not had my period. I'm a little curious as to why i haven't and what does it mean?
Most women with the implants do not have their period until its almost time for a change of implant. The hormones cause there to be less lining in the uterus, and since that is what we "bleed" every month, there just isn't anything for a period.
Nexplanon is different for everyone. Some people will bleed every day after insertion and some won't at all. I got mine inserted back in January and I've only gotten my period twice since. It's just a side effect. There's a very low chance that you are pregnant.
