... weeks later I started bleeding which was earlier than what the doctor told me to expect it. After I started spotting, it turnes to normal bleeding but not enough that I needed a tampon or anything. It has never stopped yet, Ive been bleeding since about July 9th or so. I visited my husband again a few months later and spoke with a doctor who said it was normal for me to bleed like this for 4 months but I was never told anything like this when I first got on Nexplanon. Then she stated that I could possibly have PCOS, which I'll be looking into. But my main issue as of right now is to stop the bleeding and go back to my normal menstrual cycle before I had ever gotten on Nexplanon. I completely regret it now and dont plan to use birth control ever again because of the ridiculous effect this birth control had on me. Is there any reason why this is happening?? Because I've searched online and not many women are experiencing this so I can only assume the doctor didnt know what she was talking about. Also is there any way I can stop this irregular bleeding?? If its a hormonal imbalance like I suspect, what kind of supplements or pills should I take??

Added 9 Dec 2014:
I started bleeding 2 weeks after removal but doctor said I should be back on normal cycle within 4 to 6 weeks. And I occasionally took ibuprofen because I read that it helps with hormonal imbalance which it stopped the bleeding for like a day or 2 a few times.
I'd go to a different gyne. They can give you pills to get you back on track. Its birth control pills, but they do not cause the side effects that the implant does because they are both estrogen and progesterone, for the most part. I could never have used the implant or the progesterone only pills because when they put on progesterone for hormone replacement, I bled constantly. I had to stop them and ended up having a D&C to stop the bleeding. I've heard of bleeding the whole time you have the implant, but not all this time after its out.
Has anyone experienced pain due to this? Everything was fine until I got on nexplanon, and then I started constantly bleeding, the same as when I was on the shot, except this time a few months later it also started hurting after sex. My gyno didn’t tell me much about it when I asked. I got the nexplanon removed, the pain with sex stopped, I had one normal period, and about 2 weeks later I started again but this time it hurts again and I’m not sure if this is normal or not.
