Bleeding doesnt mean that you are pregnant!! I'm not sure where you all seem to get this idea? (Sorry, not your fault, but we get a LOT of questions where girls are asking about irregular bleeding meaning pregnancy) Nexplanon has a side effect of irregular bleeding. This is normal. You are protected from pregnancy as long as you get it changed on time. You can experience slight fluctuations in hormones during the life of the implant and this can lead to irregular bleeding.
