    Its hard to tell with you not having a normal flow in so long what could be normal. Pain & flow varies from woman to woman however they do suggest if you keel o ver in pain you should get it checked out!

    A man wouldn't say that - A man would tell you to stop moaning it's just a period. Hun if you are in PAIN PAIN that shouldn't really be normal but as I say because you haven't had one for so long you never know & you don't really know what is normal for you.

    i had the implanon in for just under a year and i had to have it taken out :cry: i was having bleeding every 2-3 weeks and it was very heavy. I was told to give it 6 months to settle into my system but then i got an infection in my arm and wher the implanon was placed it had swollen away up like a plum and was all brused so got it taken out within a week after anti biotics and the swelling went down

    Im yet to meet anyone who gets on with the implant, everyone seems to have it go wrong in someway.

    Yvanne when you got PG before on the pill was it because you were not very vigilent in taking it, or were you good and regular in takin it and it just failed?

    Cause when taken properly its the best form of protestion you can get, even above the impant
