I've had the implanon for 6 months and don't get my period on it. Recently my nipples have become very tender. What could be the cause? Weight gain?

In brief: Common side effect

It does go away with time. Monitor your weight because Implanon can cause weight gain which can aggravate the breast tenderness.
