I've been on the pill for 6 months but am changing to the implant which i'm getting thursday. i've heard at first with the implant you can get irregular bleeding at times for the first three months. in those three months i'm going on holiday so the thought of me bleeding on holiday is off putting! I will still have three months of the pill prescribed so is it a good idea to take the pill at the same time for the first three months? was wondering if anyone did this etc? thanks

Talk to wherever you're getting the implant from. They may say 'sure', or they may suggest waiting three months before you have the implant.

I've had my implant for almost a year now and the irregular bleeding hasn't stopped at all in that time, it's a nightmare! Some people have no bleeding at all though so it's different for everyone. When I went to my doctor she prescribed me the pill on top of the implant to stop the bleeding and from the first day of taking it the bleeding stopped completely. It's different for everyone but I think if you have the pill and the implant for the first 3 months then you should be fine for the holiday.
