Irregular Period (1 yr)

Hi, two years ago I got the IMPLANON inserted in my arm. The first year with it went ok, my periods didnt always come at the exact time when it was scheduled but I would only have 3-4 day periods. After that year(June 2011), I had a period for a month, then it went away. It came back a few days later and ever since then I have had my period constantly with only a day break about every two months from it. It's really a terrible way to live. I got the IMPLANON so I could have sex without worrying about getting pregnant, but now with this I can't even have sex. I also don't have the money, let alone insurance to get it surgically removed. What should I do about this? Is it possible that I have used up all of my eggs and won't be able to reproduce? I would love some advice, thanks for your time.

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would reassure you that your fertility will probably be back to baseline as soon as the implanon is removed or wears off.

Also, if you call your ob/gyn doctor, he/she can probably give you something to help stop the bleeding.  Sometimes some oral estrogen is used.  Sometimes patients are actually put on oral contraceptives as crazy as that sounds.  

Hope this helps a bit!
