Hello everyone, I'm 20 years old, no children. I had the Implanon implant from 2014 had it replaced in July this year with Nexplanon, with Implanon I had a period every 2 months that lasted for 2 weeks every time which didn't really bother me. The last 4 months of Implanon (April to July) I had no periods, which was unusual cause I always had one, I had then replaced with Nexplanon in July, still no periods and it's now October and I suddenly noticed pinkish spotting, which had lasted for 3 days now it's stopped? I'm so confused, why have I suddenly spotted after 7 months of not having a period? I've been really bloated especially after I eat and I'm definitely not pregnant cause I've taken some tests. I understand it's normal for periods to mess up with a different implant but why did I stop getting them with my last one in the last 4 months when they were regular? Sorry it's long just been worried something serious is going on. Thanks
Hi Sharna, the implants both use the same active hormone, etonogestrel, and the same delivery system. The truth of it is that your endocrine system behaves differently in response to it over time. I sincerely doubt that anything serious is afoot but it would not hurt to ask your doctor about your concerns.
