I had my Implanon put in April 1, 2010. Started bleeding end of April and with the exception of 2 non-consecutive weeks early August I've been bleeding/spotting ever since. The doctor gave me Nuva-Ring to wear early August to stop the bleeding, which worked until I took it out, and I had a very heavy painful period. The following week was blood free, but it has started up again. Lately, I usually only see blood when I wipe, and it is light pink thick blood. No other side effects besides the bleeding, but it really puts a damper on sex and is a pain in life. although apparently effective as I am not pregnant. I am about ready to give up on Implanon. Anyone think I should give it a few more months?
Everyone is different ... the reviews in the link below will give you an indication. If you think the bleeding, spotting has been really bothersome ... talk to your doctor and he/she may help you decide whether you want to keep it or take it out.
