I replaced my Nexplanon before it expired but haven’t had my period since is it normal?

It is  important to know that a very common side effect of the Nexplanon can be irregular bleeding. Some people lose their period completely; some have irregular spotting, and some people bleed more for the adjustment period. Sometimes it can take anywhere from 3-6 months for the body to adjust to the new hormone.  The reason this happens is because Nexplanon contains the hormone Progesterone, which over time stops the uterine lining from building up. Sometimes it will still build up and then shed. This is why someone may not have a period, or may have irregular bleeding. This is completely okay and healthy.

So, your lack of period could certainly be related to the fact that you replaced your Nexplanon. If you continue to not have a period and you want to discuss it with a medical professional you can do this at Teen Clinic. Give us a call to make an appointment! 303-442-5160
