I got my implant put in Early February. I have been bleeding non-stop since. It is not just light spotting every now and then, it is as if I'm on a period all the time! I brought it up when I went to my women's health facility, but they made it seem like it was normal. The bleeding is interfering with my life, and due to the daily bleeding, my sex life is non-existent now. Is this normal? What should I do
I also had a nexplanon implant and I was bleeding constantly on it. When you first get the implant in, the implant is releasing a lot of the medication and the dose slowly decreases over the course of the three years it can stay in. Since you were bleeding from the time you got it it probably doesn't have a high enough dose for your body. You can ask to get the implant taken out early or get a prescription to stop the bleeding. I would also recommend maybe going to a different women's clinic or being clear with the people at your current facility that the bleeding is interfering with your life and you want options to stop it.
