Side effect: Irregular bleeding is an almost universal side effect of Progesterone implanted birth control. There is no normal time for your period on this birth control method. Some have infrequent periods and some will spot frequently.

After breastfeeding: Some women get their period back within a few months, some women don't get it for almost a year or more. If you are still breastfeeding you will likely not get your period until you stop or until you are feeding less frequently than every 5 hours or so, usually once your baby starts sleeping through the night.

Yes: Usually if ovulation occurs and no menstrual cycle follows you are probably pregnant. If you are not pregnant then either the lining of the uterine wall has scarring or the cervix is scarred closed or the vagina is blocked.

Keep taking them: It's possible not to have a withdraw bleed with ocps. It's more common with prolonged use, but to be safe, do a pregnancy test to make sure you're ok. Keep taking them if your test is negative & enjoy the lack of menses - not a problem & in my view, a perk to ocps. Take care.
