over 3 years ago I got my first nexplanon implant fitted. My periods practically stopped for the 3 years (I think I had one or two in the 3 years). When the implant was due to expire I got a new one fitted- the exact same type. My periods seem to come back and I was spotting for the first few weeks. I assumed it was just my body getting used to the change in hormones but it has now been over 6 months and I seem to have very irregular/light periods or just pro-longed spotting. Any advice on what may be causing the change? Or is there anything I can take to either stop my periods again like they did before or atleast regulate them?

i think calling a nurse will help. It is hit or miss what the implant will do to your period x

One of the most common side effects to the implant is irregular periods, there’s nothing you can do to regulate them, they have a mind if their own. I have the implant and had a period for 10 months straight and then they just stopped.
If you’re really concerned then I would contact your local nurse or GP. Or maybe consider other contraceptive options xx
