Unlikely: Since you have the Nexplanon device implanted, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. Your periods cannot possibly be normal all the time because you are not ovulating.... so you do not have periods. It is important to understand that Progestin only devices like Nexplanon stop ovulation and regular menses and may cause you to bleed irregularly and oddly, much like you are describing.
