Slight irregularities can happen after Nexplanon removal. Nothing much to worry and you can expect the periods in a couple of days.

If still delayed, you can consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I got my nexplanon removed 2 1/2 weeks ago after having it in for 5 years I had cramping a week after and very very light spotting 2 times. I did not get my period the whole 5 years I was on the nexplanon how long will it take me to get a period and ovulate? A week after removal I started getting headaches and dizzy spells also have been very tired but pregnancy test are negative.

I just had the Nexplanon implant put in at the end of October (the 26th) to be exact. I know with the first 3-6 months there can be irregular periods and bleeding/spotting but I just wanted to make sure mine was normal and at what point should I get it looked at getting it removed if it continues
