Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per your query you have been implanted with implanon and experiencing eavy bleeding mood swings and acne.

Implanon is a single-rod subdermal contraceptive implant containing hormone identical to progesterone. All the side effects you have mentioned are common ones which are experienced by most of the women in higher or lower side. Now as I can get in yourself it is quite high so it is better to consult your gynecologist who can guide you for the things on the best of the side.
Kindly reassure yourself as I already mentioned are quite common of the side effects but the only issue is non tolerability by yourself.

So it is better to consult your gynecologist for the best guidance.

Hope to have provided the helpful informations regarding your problem.
With good health wishes"
