Nexplanon and sudden stop of period?

I’m 17 and I got my nexplanon implant in early 2017 and get it out in about 5 months. I’ve always had irregular periods as it’s one of the symptoms, usually longer periods and then longer time in between each. As of April of this year I haven’t gotten my period since then and it’s unusual for me and my implant. Anything to be worried about or I’m just overthinking ?

    Nexplanon is very reliable. Less than 1:1000 women get pregnant using one in the 3 year life of the device. It's common for Nexplanon to upset the timing of periods
