Hello all! I am on the Implanon, and have been for 15 months. I've had a lot of spotting, but other than that, I've been happy with it. 3 weeks ago, I started college. I'm absolutely loving it, but it's stressful. And my body is feeling the stress. For the past 3 weeks, I have had a heavy period, with PMS symptoms (cramps and diarrhea) coming and going with different intensity. I haven't had a period this heavy in a very long time. Some days it's just heavier spotting than usual, but some days I'm going through a few tampons (that's rare for me). How can I get the bleeding to stop? I've heard that some people with Implanon and bleeding problems take HBC to stop it. Would that work for this? Or maybe even EC because it's a temporary, stress-related bleeding?
