Hi, I m 18 years old and I ve had the implanon for over two years with many side effects. I ve been on my period now for more than 3 weeks and it has all of a sudden become very heavy and painful. I am also getting achy pains down my left side (my implanon is in my left arm ) I m starting to get really worried. Could you give me some advice please?

implanon can cause side effects like pain abdomen, menstrual irregularities etc,
but as you are having continuous bleeding with severe pain better to consult gynecologist once to confirm the cause,
if the symptoms get subside with antispasmodics, antifibrinolytics it is good, if not you may have to go for removal of implanon and to choose some other contraceptive method.
take care.
