Implanon: Some women have very mild to no periods on Implanon. That is normal. Not sure what your weird symptoms are. Please explain further.

Nothing wrong: Implanon contains a progestin hormone that thins the lining of the uterus. It is not unusual to have infrequent period. Having said that, I do advise a pregnancy test just to be sure.
