I've had the implanon in for 6 yrs. Had it out over a year ago and my periods are irregular still. How long does it take to get back to normal?

Everyone is differen: you probably need to have your hormones checked and also an exam to make sure there is not another cause for it Usually within 6 months your periods are back to normal You may need some mini BC pills for awhile or other treatments Please go and be seen
