I have had the contraceptive bar for just over a year now and since getting it I haven't had my period. but now just recently ive been bleeding for the past 3 weeks and not sure why, I don't think it is my monthly period as i haven't got any of my usual back pain, cramps or anything before bleeding. Help
Yes, this is perfectly normal. Implants secrete the highest level of hormones the first year and then begin to taper off the second and third years so bleeding and spotting is often seen sporadically in the second year and may become more regular in the third year. Once it is replaced again, you will likely not bleed for another year.

Is there any options I can take to stop the bleeding with the contraceptive implant without removal?
