I’ve been on Nexplanon for about 4 months now and I have not started my period for the last 2 months. Is that normal?

Great question!

A vey 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 your body to adjust to the new hormone

So while this is a very common side effect, if you are feeling concerned you can make an appointment with the doctor that inserted your Nexplanon and discuss it further with them.
