... been 17 days and I'm still bleeding. Is normal? I was told when I got it put in that they would last a little longer. But 17 days is kinda pushing it. Should I be worried?
Irregular bleeding is a hallmark side effect of Implanon, especially in the first few months. Usually the bleeding will stop after that until somewhere in the last year before it is due to be replaced then it may start up again here and there. It is normal and nothing to worry about other than being a great PITA. If it gets troublesome and doesnt stop soon, talk to your OB/GYN, sometimes they use a regimen of ibuprofen to stop the bleeding.
