Yes it's normal: Progestin-only contraceptive implants provide highly effective pregnancy prevention. It is common for progestin only contraceptives, like implants, to cause unpredictable menstrual changes, including missed periods, infrequent periods, heavy periods, or more frequent periods. If you are concerned, you can always do a home urine pregnancy test.
