End of implant

bleeding

#1

Hi @Dr_Paula.
My third implant is due to expire end of November and I am booked in to have a new one put in on 5th October.

I am finding that for the past 3/4 months I have had constant bleeding. However not like a usual period. Could this be due to it coming to the end as before this my periods would tend to be 2 weeks and then a 4 week break with no problems.

Hello,

Anecdotally some people find that their bleeding pattern changes towards the end of the life of the implant, but it does not completely make sense as the amount of hormone released by the implant remains fairly constant throughout this timeā€¦

I am sorry not to have a definitive answer. This is definitely something to discuss with the clinic when you have it changed.

Many thanks

Paula
