Perioid/implant problem? - September 14th 2011, 08:02 PM

I'm currently on the implant, I've had it for over a year now. To start with, I'd go 2/3 months without a period and then I'd have one and then I'd go another 2/3 months without one and it was all good, I knew that my implant would stop it/make it light so I just assumed it was due to that.

Recently, however, it's been different. It seems that I'll just randomly bleed one day, go for a week or so without and then I'll bleed again. Sometimes it'll be just a little bit and then others it's lasts the day. I'm starting to get a bit concerned now because of the fact that it's so random and it'll happen once or twice in a month, a week or so apart so it' not like it's a proper period.

Any ideas on why this is happening? As I said, it's worrying me and it's getting annoying when it catches me off guard and I've got nothing with me..

As I'm sure you know, we aren't doctors so we can't come up with any definite conclusions. It could just be the implant causing you more problems than you know. It can take many months for an implant to be causing you any problems, just like oral contraceptives. The best thing to do would be to contact your/a doctor to figure out what's going on.

People react differently to hormonal birth control. Irregularity in your period isn't unusual- it certainly doesn't surprise me. It happens with hormonal IUDs as well.

Perhaps you can wear a pantyliner? I know it must be quite frustrating for you. If it would help you feel better, you may want to talk to your doctor about it but it seems to be a common problem, really.

I'd go back to the doctor and ask them about it ... it may just be inconvenient for you, in which case they usually encourage you to keep it. In some cases it can affect your health - I had it for around 18months, with only a few weeks with no period - I became anaemic. Only in those circumstances do they like to remove them ... the excuse I was given over that time was "it's a surgical procedure to put it in / take it out, albeit a small one, we don't like to do that if it's not needed for health reasons."

Thanks for the replies. Nice to hear that it isn't too out of the ordinary so I can stop worrying. If it persists, I'll probably go to the doctors just to double check everything is okay.

Yup, one of the official side effects is random bleeding sometimes ... it's fine unless it affects your health. If it increases or you start getting dizzy etc, go check it out, otherwise I'd say you're pretty safe
