Is it normal for nexplanon not to get your period ever?

Hi, I just got the birth control implant the 14th of October. I didn't get it put in during my period, I think my period started on the 7-8th of October. When I got it she told me I'd likely experience some irregular bleeding, which I never did experience. She also told me not to have unprotected sex for 2 weeks and also had a checkup on the 28th, two weeks after. She told me it was looking fine. I had sex for the first time after getting the implant on the 30th. I was supposed to get my period on the 4-5th of November and I haven't gotten it yet. I know she told me that my periods would likely get lighter and maybe stop altogether but I feel like it's too soon for them to stop completely? I was experiencing some cramping around the time that I was supposed to get my period but nothing came. Should I go talk to my doctor about this or is this normal? No risk of pregnancy, right?

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
It is normal for the bleeding to stop as soon as your first period. In fact most women get the implant so they do not have to deal with getting a period.
It does not mean you are pregnant. You do not have to worry.
