Severe paeriod pains and irregular bleeding after having implant. What should I do ?

I have the Implant and since having this for 2 years have experienced severe period pains, irregular bleeding that lasts for up to 2-3 weeks which is often followed by 2-5days of spotting. I was advised to combine the pill with my implant to see if it settles it down but on taking it for 7days felt sick and had further pain. I have read on the internet that the symptoms I have can be serious but my GP has shown no interest in solving my problem and still has not allowed for my implant out. I m starting to become really worried that the irregularity of my periods can lead to problems in my adult life such as not being able to conceive.

Thanks for writing to us.
The severe pain and irregular bleeding are usual side effects of the implant. This will subside gradually in next few days. Please do not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
