I got my implant inserted on August 3rd while on my period and continued my regular cycle for that week. I got my period again on the 20th of August for 11 days. On September 13th I had sex and I noticed very light blood after a few hours and thought it was my period again but the blood became brown discharge that has continued for almost a month now and once it seems like it lightens up and is about to stop, it keeps going. I again had sex today and the bright red bleeding started again for the whole day. Has anyone had similar experiences? Has it stopped after a few months? is the implant worth it and if not, what did you switch to?
Yes i bled like this for a year before I gave up on the Implant.
