Uterine bleeding: Take regular Ibuprofen and if you have BCP increase the number to 4 once daily times 2 days and then taper by one every 2 days until back to 1 a day. The concern is that you will become anemic. Seek whatever medical you can for help. All the best. ...Read more

GYN: I suggest a comprehensive GYN exam, pelvic ultrasound, uterine and cervical evaluation and if necessary biopsy of the uterine lining. Do not ignore these symptoms at your age.

Yes: With the Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) injection, your bleeding pattern will not be predictable. You may not bleed at all and some may have daily bleeding. It should gradually get better. It I still wise to do a pregnancy test just in case this is a miscarriage. Good Luck. ...Read more

Bummer: I'm so sorry that you're having these side effects. You may want to talk to doctor about taking some estrogen to help stop the bleeding. As far as the stomach cramping is concerned, Ibuprofen should work for that. Craving coffee.... Hmmmm, I'm not sure that's related? ...Read more

Not uncommon: It is not uncommon for women using Implanon / Nexplanon to have menstrual changes, including periods that last longer than normal, bleeding or spotting between periods, or missed periods.
