The implant Birth control problems.....anyone else ?


After labor 8months ago. I'd chosen to put the Implant in my arm for birth control, iv done this before but had it removed within the first month, so i wasnt to find of it. Its said that periods arnt likely, just a little light spotting every now and then. But Iv been bleeding heavily at randoms times all throughout the month !? NORMAL???? Or is there something else going on, perhaps from giving birth ? 🤔 Any one else experiencing these problems with the implant? Or other symptoms that you know it's not you , it's the birth control? Just touching up on it before I make an app. 😬😬

    I have the nexplanon implant in my arm and I’m actually getting it out Thursday I’ve had it for 3 years and I’ve had nothing but problems tmi but iv bled for all 3 years irregularly I always have some type of discharge everyday it’s horrible I’ve had back pain eating problems and pain where the implant is and i finally got a second and third oppion(aside from my ob who says it’s normal) and now after years of problems and no answers my new primary suggested we look into side effects and all my problems are side effects so we decided to remove it and I’m so happy to finally get this thing out it’s the worst birth control I’ve ever been on and I’ve tried almost every one except the iud hope this helps good luck

    I have the implant in since I gave birth 9 months ago but I also had it fue a year n a half before I took it off n changed back to pills. The reason why I stopped is because the last 2 months I was spoting for 2 weeks then stopped for 1 week and resumed back to 2 whoa which made me miserable. Keep in mind that you haven't had a period in a long time so your body is acting up cuz it hasn't "eliminated" itself for a while.

    I had the mirena after having dd in 2015. I didn’t like it personally so I decided to try the nexplanon. After having a lot of hormonal issues, periods where out of wack the entire time and my sex drive wasn’t there anymore. Since hormonal birth control is only 30% affective with the medication I have to take for seizures I decided to completely pull all birth control, this was actually the first time I’ve ever even tried it and just wasn’t good for me. I think both options could be good for someone else
