Hi Alyssa, firstly you need a new doctor who listens to their patients. If he/she is a man (the current doctor) then you need a woman doctor who will have the capacity for empathy. Men are more likely to ignore issues they don't understand or does not affect them. In my opinion more than a few, treat their women patients shamefully.
Your complaint is a common one (remember we only read complaints so I can't say how common your symptoms are). If I were in your shoes, I would get the implant removed and try a different form of birth control. I would not recommend the Depo Provera shot either, just because of the extreme issues it causes some women.
