I had spotting for 4 months after I got it. I took it out. Irregular bleeding is a side effect and that is likely your problem. So you can either wait and hope it stops or remove it and try something else.

Im on my 3rd year of my 2nd implant (6th year all together) and up until last year i hadnt bled AT ALL since having it in. last year i had a ‘bleed’ but **TMI WARNING** it was old blood – dark with no ‘flow’. chatted to a friend who is also on the implant and she said she had had something similar – we called it a ‘clearout’ – makes sense… no period for that long i guess the body has gotta freshen up somehow.

THIS year – i had a proper period – cramps, fresh blood – full on towels and tampons kinda situation. lasted 2 and a half weeks. that was last month. waiting to see if it happens again this month and if it does i think im gonna whip the implant out. its due out in Jan anyway so only gonna be a few months early.

i dont really have any advise, other than i would see a doctor and maybe look at changing your contracetpion to something else if it continues.xx
