Hey... just looking for some advice!

I'm on my second implant and in my final year of it (runs out Jan 2019) and this is the first time since having this implant ive been late on, now late by 11 days.

I realise no contraception is 100% but surely it shouldn't have run out yet? Any information I get says it can run out quicker with rapid weight gain etc but this hasn't happened to me. Just wondering what other people have experienced on this contraception? On my first implant I would also miss periods but have never on this one!

Any advice is appreciated, thank you in advance!

    The implant was SO very unpredictable when I had it. I went the whole first year without a period. The second year I had a period that lasted weeks and by the third year I had a period that was not stop and lasted MONTHS at a time. It was terrible for me. I had mood swings, terrible periods, terrible weight gain and was tired at all hours of the day.

      Have you talked to your doctor about this? I honestly was never told that it could run out? Mine was actually taken out late due to not being able to get an appointment when I wanted it to.
