Hi thanks for your question.
Irregular bleeding or no bleeding at all is common after implant and is its side effect.There is nothing to worry for that. Vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiency have no effect on menstrual cycle . Yes implant will work with vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiency.
Hope this answers your question
