Implanon is sub dermal hormonal contraceptive method, used for 3 yrs and effective more than 99%.

It has some side effects & it varies from woman to woman like irregular period/ spotting, prolonged amenorrhea, headache, Weight change, abdominal discomfort, nausea, fatigue, mood swing etc.

Do a USG lower abdomen & some hormone test including blood for beta HCG to rule out underlying pathology if any. Take iron supplements with your diet.

Avoid stress, control body wt by regular light exercise, drink plenty of water and need proper sleep.
