Birth Control/Nexaplanon

Question
I had the implant put in on October 2012 right after my daughter was born. Then it was taken out on April 20th, 2015, since then I haven't had a period or seen any signs of it. My question is is this normal or could I be pregnant?

Answer
For most women, fertility returns fairly soon after removal of the implant, so if you're not using birth control, you could be pregnant.  I'd do a pregnancy test.

It also might be that it just takes a little time for your regular periods to resume.  If a pregnancy test is negative, I would just give it a little time.
