I’ve had Nexplanon for about 9 months now, and I’m ALWAYS on my period. What can I do to stop this constant bleeding?

One of the most common side effects of the Nexplanon birth control can be irregular bleeding. Some people lose their period completely, some have irregular spotting, and some people bleed more for the adjustment period. Sometimes it can  take anywhere from 3-6 months for your body to adjust to the new hormone.

Since you’ve had bleeding for 9 months, it would be a good idea to see the doctor that inserted the Nexplanon into your body. Let them know that you are have a constant period, and they may be able to offer you something to help with the bleeding. There can be options to at least help with this symptom.
