Brief Answer:
probably a side effect

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query.
After removal of implanon, there is irregular bleeding due to hormonal imbalance.
Even after the intercourse, if there is bleeding,whatever the colour, there is usually no chance of pregnancy. It is just an effect of removal of implanon.

But any other cause of bleeding cannot be excluded and an OBS/GYN need to be consulted for clinical examination and investigations.

Hope I have answered you. You can close the discussion and rate the answer, if you don't have further query.

Wish you good health

Brief Answer:
Little confusion

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the follow up.
There is little doubt which i will try to explain.
With Expired implanon, you meant to say it is expired beyond its time and can cause side effects like expired medicines do. It is not like this.

Implanon is completely inert and expired means the hormone it releases is finished and it is no longer effective.

What you are experiencing is due to effect of finished hormone.

Hope i cleared the doubt.

i'm pretty sure my implanon is broken... it makes a pop noise alot and feels like it separates when pressure is applied. I wouldnt have noticed but one day i heard the "pop" and i know for an inanimate object to make a noise there has to be two pieces. will it still work being in two pieces?

I've had the implanon for about 6-7 months and for the past 2 weeks I've been getting pains in my belly and across my lower back, just a couple of days ago my nipples started to become sore and would hurt when I touch them, is this a side effect off the implanon?

Hi,
I have had the implanon birth control for 2 years. At the beginning, I had no bleeding. For the past 21 days I have had constant bleeding rather heavy at times. I feel so drained and have cramps everyday. I can not get in to see my doctor for another month even though I explained what is going on. Any suggestions to help ease this?
