    Angry Month long period after year and a half of Nexplanon

    I had the Nexplanon 3 year birth control implant put in February of 2013 when i was 16 years old. Up until early-mid June, I had not had any periods. Now, I have had my period on and off for almost an entire month. It is mostly spotting but enough to require the use of tampons and refrain from sexual activity. I have been pretty emotional lately and was up last night with bad cramps. Nothing in my daily schedule or eating habits has changed therefore I do not understand what could be causing this. ALSO, I have been experiencing extreme fatigue. Does anyone have ideas as to why this is occurring? I would hate to have the implant removed because this is the first time it has given me problems so far and I'm not even sure it is the cause.

    *I have had the same boyfriend for 10 months so i do not think STD's would be of any relevance*

    I think we are in the same boat I have nexplanon too and have this constant spotting my doctor prescribed birth control pills to stop it but it hasn't helped so far but it may for you I've also heard that many things can effect it like taking pain control meds like ibuprofen or tylenol
