Can cause bleeding: Irregular bleeding is a common and normal side effect of nexplanon. For some bleeding occurs less frequently than your normal cycle. For others more frequently. There is no normal bleeding pattern on Nexplanon. Your obgyn can attempt to control this breakthrough bleeding with other medications. For some this will work.
