I've had the implant for almost a year now. In the first few months I had red/brown discharge and no periods, since then I haven't had any periods or any of this kind of discharge. Yesterday I got period cramps and now today I have this brown discharge again like I got at the start. Is this normal? Do I have anything to be worried about? I'm just confused as it is so long after i had it inserted, and I haven't been having periods
Brown discharge after one year on Nexplanon?

Hi I don't think you need to worry. I'm on my second implant now and my bleeding was extremely irregular while on my first one. I believe everyone is different but I did not bleed at all the first year that I had my first Implanon in. I then only got my periods every couple of months until I came to the last 6months of my 3rd yr. Within the last 6months I had monthly bleeding and I also had brown discharge. I spoke to my doctor about it and she said it was normal.
I'm now about a month in to my 2nd Implanon and I've had brown discharge on nd off the whole time. If you're worried speak to your doctor. If mine doesn't stop soon I'll be going the same.
My experience with this second insert has been very different than the first so I dont think there is really "normal" where the implanon is concerned.
PS... try not to worry. It is of no benefit and only puts stress on your body.
