Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Normally, after the removal of the implants, the bleeding occurs within 3 months but occasionally the bleeding may not happen for a prolonged period.

However, you need to consult a gynecologist to look for the cause of amenorrhea. It can happen because of hormonal imbalance, increased stress, eating disorder, increased smoking, alcohol or caffeine use and medical conditions like PCOS, fibroid, polyps and endometriosis.

An ultrasound of the uterus can also help in diagnosing medical conditions causing delayed periods. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
