What causes brown vaginal bleeding upon removal of Implanon?

I got off the implanon March 30th . I had pink spotting the 31st and 1st of April . April 2nd I had VERY heavy bleeding lasting till April 6th. Then had brown spotting on the 7th, then 11th-13th. May 2nd my boyfriend and I had sex and he came in me twice. 2 days later I noticed brown spotting. It didn t have a smell bore did it cause me discomfort. It started from the 5th of may and was very light. Then progressively started to come out in scants getting a lil darker & heavier ( only enough to catch on a pantyliner , but always nothing after whiping after using the bathroom ) but this lasted till the 15th of may . Could this be implantation bleeding ? I seen online it says IB usually lasts a day or two but I also read in some cases it can last 2 weeks, or you could have the discharge the whole first month of pregnancy.. can I take a first response early result test 3 days after spotting has stopped ? Or is it just because of the stupid birth control I m getting my hopes up ?!

Mild bleeding can happen after removal off Implanon and it will settle by itself.

Nothing much to worry and no treatment is required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
