Nexplanon: Nexplanon is a progestin implant form of birth control, and ovultation may occasionally be delayed, with a consequent "missed period". If you are concerned about pregnancy, wait 10-14 days and if you have not had your period, obtain a serum HCG test to make certain about pregnancy.

Nexplanon: Nexplanon may cause a delay in ovulation which will delay the onset of a period. Progestin implants like Nexplanon can cause very irregular cycles, but pregnancy is about 99% avoided in any case.
