Thanks for posting your query on healthcare magic.
Implanon is known to cause breakthrough bleeding.
It one of the commonest side effect.
Treatment is to continue with implanon.
Your symptoms of breakthrough bleeding will subside in about 3 months.
Since pregnancy test is negative less likely you are pregnant.
Hope this helps.
