No, : No, bleeding for three weeks is not normal. You should be medically evaluated for this. If you have pain, bleed greater than 3 pads an hour, or feel lightheaded then you must be evaluated as an emergency.

Get evaluated: Implanon can cause changes to your bleeding. BUT if you have been bleeding for three weeks that warrants medical attention. Take care.
