Bleeding common: It is not uncommon to bleed with implanon. Get Estradiol tablets 2 mg and try 1/2 at night. The systemic Progesterone thins the lining of the uterus and can take a while to work or continue with the bleeding. Using some estrogen will help. ...Read more

Get it removed: There is still medicine in your implanon. For the company to say that you have 3 full years of coverage, they have to put extra medicine into the implanon. If you get pregnant, your baby will be exposed. Use condoms until you can get your doctor to remove the implanon. ...Read more

I have a nexplanon implant in my arm for about five months never got cramps or bleed. Yesterday I started spotting and cramping is itnormal?

Yes: Nexplanon secretes a steady level of progestins that prevent ovulation and therefore prevents pregnancy. There is no estrogen in Nexplanon therefore no regular cyclic bleeding. Any bleeding pattern is normal... All the time spotting, cyclic menses. Or occ menses like you have had now. It is good birth control though so hang in there! ...Read more

In april I got an implanon rod inserted in my arm. I have been bleeding two months straight. Will it stop any time soon? Is this a problem?

Possibly and no: The most troublesome side effect of Implanon is what is called breakthrough bleeding. It usually occurs because the progestin hormone in Implanon makes the endometrium layer of the uterus too thin and unstable. The bleeding is unpredictable and may stop. It does not effect the contraceptive effectiveness of implanon. ...Read more

May be normal: It may take a few months after Implanon is removed for your regular cycle to return. Did you have regular menses before the Implanon was placed? Because if you did not ovulate regularly before, it is likely you still won't. do you want to get pregnant? If not get Nexplanon placed or start another reliable form of contraception. ...Read more

I have been bleeding for 3 weeks with nexplanon implant?

I have Nexplanon implant that is due out in April. I have not had a period in over two years, now I am experiencing frequent bleeding. Thoughts?

Less progesterone: Nexplanon (and Implanon) contain a progesterone released into your blood gradually, and the amount released decreases slowly over time (3 years). The dose is usually enough to completely stop menstruation, but as the dose lessens, you can have a recurrence of irregular bleeding/spotting. This is not uncommon and does not mean that you are ovulating unless the bleeding becomes regular. ...Read more

Your hormones are in: .. flux for some reason, so hang on for the ride. Irregular periods and spotting could mean you may have some hormonal imbalance that could be affected by many different factors. However with Nexplanon implant you should not have significant breakthrough bleeding, so you need to check with your GYN to see if they can give you an explanation or alternative for birth control without the bleeding. ...Read more

Post surgical bleed: This may be a post surgical bleed/drainage or rarely, withdrawal bleeding from the Nexplanon. Ask your surgeon which is the most likely scenario. If only one tube was removed, you will still need the Nexplanon. ...Read more

I've been on Nexplanon (Implant) for 1.5 months now with constant light bleeding. I have two months worth of left over Falmina pills. Use them too?

Nexplanon bleed: Irregular bleeding is an almost universal side effect of nexplanon. There is no normal time for your period on this birth control method.

Which is most likely to cause irregular bleeding, the mini pill, the Skyla IUD, or the Nexplanon implant?

Which is most likely to cause irregular bleeding, the mini pill, the Skyla IUD, or the Nexplanon implant?

All of them can: You have listed 3 Progesterone only methods. Irregular bleeding is a common side effects of any Progesterone only method. One can not predict ahead of time who will have this issue and who will not. I don't think we can accurately rank these methods in terms of potential bleeding issues. Mirena (levonorgestrel) (which you did not mention) rarely has breakthrough bleeding. ...Read more

I have the implanion implant in my arm but it was due out in feb? I haven't used protection in intercourse could I b pregnant?

Yes: You should not rely on an expired Implanon for contraception. In terms of contraception, I would view this as not using contraception at all since february. You may be pregnant. I would see your doctor to have it removed and talk about getting another one or switching to something else. If you desire pregnancy, make sure you have it removed and start prenatal vitamins. ...Read more
