I am not sure if you are talking about a progestin implant in the arm or the IUD in the uterus. Both cause amenorrhea or lack of menstruation. There also associated with weight gain. Progesterone can also cause some bowel distention and increasing gassiness. I would recommend that you take a pregnancy test. My guess is that you are not pregnant because the long-acting reversible contraceptives such as the arm implant or IUD have a very high effectiveness more so even than contraceptive pills but the pregnancy test will answer this question completely.
