I'm 19 years old and got implanon in April of 2014 so I've had it over a year and a half now. I got my period really late, I was sort of a late bloomer and didn't get it until I was 16. And once I got it they were extremely heavy and irregular so I'd be throwing up and cramping terribly for 2 weeks at a time every 3 weeks. I never went to the doctor for this because my mom had bad periods when she was younger so I figured it was genetic. I got implanon to hopefully stop these frequent periods or at least regulate them. Since I got it though I've been on one continuous period for over a year. Sometimes I have a week or so break but the first nine months it didn't stop and now I only have a break of a week or so before it starts again and that's only happened 4 times. I don't know if my hormones are messed up or something. My doctor said it could take as long as a year to even out but it's been well over a year now and I'm still bleeding.. any help to end this would be great
