Hi dear user, thanks for your query.

Irregular bleeding/ spotting or complete cessation of menses are one of the common side effect of progesterone implants. In my opinion, they are not harmful. Pain in abdomen is not common with these implants.It may be due to associated bleeding or some infection.

Hope this helps.
