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.
