      I know, I am at the end of my teather... When I fitted they did say you could bleed for a long time tine up to 6months ad the hormones can take that long to settle, I just didnt know if any one had the same experience and the the bleeding went... Only another month to go then having it out!!

    I have had an implant fitted last year and took it out after 8 months. For the first three months I was non stop bleeding, then a doctor gave me pills to regulate my periods - it worked, but what was the point of having an implant if I still have to take pills? My emotional state was a disaster and I couldnt take my random mood swings anymore (it wasnt like that before), so I decided that my body rejected the implant and life got so much better after I took it out!!

    If after six months you are still bleeding like crazy and have other bad side effects it means the implant is not for you, dont suffer - take it out smile
