I had nexplanon inserted a little over a month ago and I started bleeding about 10 later. I have not stopped bleeding since and it's been 5 (almost 6 weeks)! This is the first time I've ever tried birth control. I feel like I want to scream! I'm tired of the constant bleeding. It's not as heavy as a normal period but it's enough to keep me from having comfortable sex. Sometimes I won't bleed for a few hours and then it'll start back up again. I'm tired of the disappointment. I just want the bleeding to stop :(
The same thing happened to me except it was after a few months of having the implant. It just means the hormones in the implant don't work with your system or something. Call your doctor and he/she can put you on a secondary pill that should stop the bleeding. It is super annoying and a total hassle.
