I got a Nexplanon implant in March and didn't have a period for 5 months then I got my "period" which turned into break through bleeding for three months and I was using tampons the whole time because it was heavy period-like bleeding. I couldn't go in to the doctor because of my class schedule until recently so I got the implant removed and started new pills. My bleeding has stopped but now I am getting A LOT of vaginal discharge. It feels almost as heavy as having a period except it isn't dark in color. I realize that this may be a response from using tampons for such a long time or from starting a new pill. I'm a bit concerned about toxic shock or this continuing for a long time. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience or knows why it is happening and when it will stop.
