    The best advice I can give is don't take medical advice from the internet. If something hurts, that's a sign to go to your doctor

    Yes, this is see your GP or a sexual health clinic time.

    A changing pattern of bleeding is normal, including irregular light bleeding, but pain isn't something you should have to put up with.

    See your doctor. The implant may not be the best option for you. Don't ask for advice from the internet as it can be different for each person.

    I'm sorry to hear this. As the others have said, definitely visit your doctor. They may explore other methods of contraceptive as an altervative to the implant with you, or may try to find a solution so that you can keep your implant in without these effects

    This may just be a side effect of the implant I’m afraid. I had constant/irregular bleeding whilst on the implant and had to come off it. Definitely see your gp and find out if this is the cause, and if there’s an alternative!😊

    See your doctor. Some people get heavier periods with the implant, so it may be that it just doesn't agree with you.
