Answer:

There are many reasons why you may have missed your period, but it doesn’t sound like pregnancy is one of them. If you are on a method of birth control like the depo shot or the implant, one of the common side effects is missed or irregular periods. From time to time, some women will miss periods due to hormonal changes the body. There are also some women who will have irregular periods throughout their lives. If you have more questions about why you may be missing periods, see a gynecologist.
