Yes, could be. : Nexplanon is great BC. The most common side effect is a change in your normal menstrual bleeding pattern. In studies, 1 out of 10 women stopped using the implant because of an unfavorable change in their bleeding pattern. You may experience longer or shorter bleeding during your periods or have no bleeding at all. You were bleeding should not be heavy. If it persists, contact your Doc.
