I've been exhausted since I had the implanon inserted over a year ago. Given, I have a 1.5 year old, but its incredibly severe fatigue and loss of interest when I'm bleeding. The bleeding is 85% of the time. Whether its blood or dark brown old blood, something is coming out 85% of the time. Could this be bc of the implanon?
