Normal: One of the benefits of Implanon is no cycles (amenorrhea). It's expected and normal. However, no birth control is 100% effective so check a pregnancy test if you have any symptoms. Take care.

Pregnant?: Purchase a home pregnancy test. They become positive at about the same time you'd start your next expected period. If it's negative, repeat in 1 week.
