Implanon Rss

i had it inserted 2 months ago. and since then i have had 5 days were i havent bled. and thats not 5 days in a row. it was 2 days there and 3 days just gone and am now bleeding again. im just wondering if anyone has had it how long did it take you to stop? or get some "regularity" about it?

i cant get in to see my doc till next tuesday. its not just the bleeding thats the issue. im anemic as it is so long bouts of bleeding can become a bit dangerous for me, and the depression and flactuating weight (mostly loss) has caused the bar to become pronounced (more visible) you can see it when my arm is straightened and when its bent the ends stick out. so im pretty sure im going to get it removed but thought id ask here what everyones experiences where

and yes i know its not for everyone

TIA

i bled more often than not on it and eventually got it removed
it also caused mood swings

When I had Implanon there was irregular bleeding also. I kept it in for about 6 months, but eventually got fed up with it, and had it taken out.
lol thats what i thought, i hadnt heard good things about it , but i forget the pill and two of my kids were concieved on it anyway. and all the others like the implanon causes irregular bleeding etc.
thnks for the replies

I had the implanon and it was just fantastic!!! to start off with things where a bit irregular but it didnt take long for my cycle to get back to normal. then I got my regular period once a month but not very heavy at all.

I think you just need to give it some time and see if it is the right thing for your body!!!! only you will know

It didn't agree with my body at all. I had it in for about 5 months and i only had a break for about a week or 2 in that whole time. I got my doctor to take it out and has soon has it was out my body went back to normal.




Hi,
I had my implanon put in over 2.5yrs ago now its due to come out this September being 3yrs that I've had it in. At first I wasn't sure on it as heard so many bad stories about it, but thought I'd give it a go as didn't have many other contraception options. Anyway I had it put in 3 weeks after I had my last baby, I had a few spot bleeds at first but then it settled down, but then when I gave up breastfeeding just 5mths later I had bleeding for 3 weeks straight and very heavy and I went to see my dr as I wanted it out but she told me to just see how I go as my hormones would be all over the place giving up b/feeding anyway, so I waited and yeah it did settle down in that next week it all stopped and then I never had this problem again, I never get a period, all I get is every 6mths I have a small spot bleed, I often feel like AF is coming but it doesn't and its been really great. I'm sort of dreading now about having it out and how a 2nd one put in will go and whether it will be the same. But I think its worth just sitting it out a bit as it just might work for you too, I think its been great but I know its not for everyone.

I had mine in for about 2 years, and it was pretty irregular to start off with. Actually come to think of it, it was pretty irregular the whole time.

For the first few months, i had my periods 2 weeks on 2 weeks off, pretty heavily. then they started to sort themselves out a bit, and i would get it for about a week and a half every 3 months or so, and then eventually i stopped getting my period all together. Which i was pretty stoked about, and then after a while started to think "hmm this surely can not be good for you!" so i ended up getting it taken out.
I've had it before and didn't stop bleeding on it. It was horrible so I had it taken out. I've heard more bad experiences with it than good.
yeaaah its def not for everyone.

I didn't get my period on it at all lol which was a bonus I suppose. But I became freakishly moody, had huge constant outbreaks of pimples, gained a heap of weight..plus my body was starting to reject it also. If it's not working for you i would say get it removed lol
