Hello,

Since you are having heavy bleeding it is unlikely that you have conceived. It is most likely to be menstrual bleeding. The cycle can come early / late due to the recent discontinuation of Implanon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lekshmi Rita Venugopal, General & Family Physician
