Ok i'll start from the top. Me and my gf started having sex so she got on the pill birth control. It was going fine but she didn't want to take the pills anymore so she switch to implanon. Now the day she switched she still took her normal birth control and also got the implanon, and we had sex, still within the time period of the pills. So are we still safe from getting pregnant? But now she is on her period, it started as spotting for half a week and then a heavy period started and it hasn't stopped now and its been almost 2 and a half weeks. We are not sure on what is going on? Any help, i'm always worrying she is pregnant.

If she's on her period she's probably not pregnant. Also, im on implanon, and i got it in march and got my period 2 weeks after getting it, and ive had a medium period the whole time, it hasnt stoped! I hope she has better luck than i have with it, they say to wait 3 months than if it doesnt get better you have the option of getting it out, which is what im going to do.

HERE is what is going on.

IMPLANON CAUSES IRREGULAR BLEEDING, EVERYDAY BLEEDING, OR BLEEDING EVERY 2 WEEKS.

This is NORMAL AND TO BE EXPECTED with Implanon use.

Implanon is NOT Like other BC methods, it does not regulate the periods.

Implanon
I would not recommend the implant at all! I have it in for 4 and a half months and i was on my period the WHOLE time. I suffered from excruciating period pains, nausea, depression, mood swings, headaches ... I got it taken out 2 days ago and i have been prescribes pills to stop my period pains as paracetamol, ibuprofen and hot water bottles didn't help and i have to have a blood test to see if i am anemic as i am tired all of the time, i have NO energy, bad headaches and i am constantly cold.
