- Wedding: April 2013
Last July, I got the Nexplanon implant for birth control. I’ve been very happy with it, and actually haven’t gotten any periods since (which freaked me out a bit, but it has such high effectiveness that I’m okay with it).
Darling Husband and I originally wanted an April 27th wedding, but once we got looking, April 6th was the only date that worked out with the venue. Well, we really lucked out – two of my bridesmaids got pregnant and were due May 15th, and then the weather ended up being AMAZING.
Well… I just got my first period since July!! If we had gotten the date we wanted, I’d have my period on our honeymoon! Funny how this stuff works out.
My boobs were SO SO SO sore a week ago – to the point that I took a pregnancy test (negative). I guess I know why now!
So here’s my Too Much Information question. Before Nexplanon (either on nothing or on the pill), I was like clockwork with my cycles. This period is very dark brown and relatively light flow so far. Is the dark brown normal after going that long without a period?
