What can I do about prolonged bleeding after being on the contraceptive implant for a month?

What can I do about prolonged bleeding after being on the contraceptive implant for a month?

Patience: I presume you are referring to the implanon. This device is a progestin only contraceptive which carries about a 70% to 80% risk of daily spotting and bleeding that may last for up to 6 or 8 months. There is no effective long term treatment for the bleeding, be patient and it will probably quit eventually.

Would prolonged bleeding from fibroid cause a yeast infection or foul vaginal odor?

Would prolonged bleeding from fibroid cause a yeast infection or foul vaginal odor?

Doubtful: Foul vaginal discharge often suggests bacterial vaginosis (an infection), and yeast infections are secondary to a wide spectrum of issues including vaginal acidity, prior use of antibiotics, etc. Suggest you see your ob/gyn about this.
