IUD: It is not unusual for you to have irregular bleeding with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) Type IUD which I assume you have. This usually calms down and most women have little bleeding then. It would not be a bad idea to check with your doctor to see if he or she would want to do something to stop this and check you for anemia. This could be done by phone. ...Read more

Very effective: Implanon or Nexplanon are very effective insofar as they are permanently inserted and therefore the women cannot be off like when on birth control pills when she misses a pill. Breakthrough bleeding can occur. No birth control method including tubal ligation is 100 % effective. When pregnancy is suspected, a home urine pregnancy test can tell. ...Read more

I’m a not sexually active female that has the nexiplon birth control bar for almost 3 Years I have dark brown and blood like discharge. I haven’t had my period since the insertion of my birth control. I have had excruciating pain in my overies. Help?

Get care ASAP: This is not something that can be helped online. You need to see a doctor. If this is a new problem, don't delay -- for sure by tomorrow (Monday), and even this evening if pain is very severe, bleeding becomes very heavy, if you have fever, or if you become light-headed or dizzy. This probably won't turn out to be serious, but you should not take the chance. Good luck! ...Read more
