When do periods begin after removal of Nexplanon?

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.

You can wait a few more days for spontaneous bleeding. If periods are still delayed, better to consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

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

So I had the nexplanon/implanon form of birth control a few months ago and i took it out due to heavy bleeding and other physical issues. Now after it was removed I was expecting a period the month after, when i didn t get it i just figured hormones changing. Now however i have missed yet another period and i am 11 days late. My husband and I have had unprotected sex but i have taken about 4-5 pregnancy tests and they have all come back negative. So in turn i am worried about what is going on with me.
