Six months. I didn't come on the whole month of October. But came on twice in September. Just wanted to know was every thing ok. In to ask you was it good on not getting pregnant because I have had unprotected sex.
Implanon is a very effective method of birth control. Your chance of pregnancy is less than 1%. No birth control is 100% effective but this one is as close as you can get! It is 99,9% effective as long as you have it replaced on time. As far as your menses (periods), they can be very irregular with Implanon. Often women will bleed a month or two when it is first placed then may not bleed at all the first year then start to have some irregular bleeding the second year then by the the time it is due to be replaced the third year they may be having periods pretty close to every month again. It may not happen this way in every woman because irregular bleeding is well, irregular, so you may have a bit different experience. Irregular bleeding is kind of a hallmark for this type of birth control. If it (bleeding)becomes very heavy or lasts a long time, talk to the health care provider who placed it.
