My periods are never ending. Im on more than off. What is going on

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am 49 this year. I ve had a second Nexplanon implant put in in January. Took Levonelle a week after because i have no idea what my cycle is because is all over the place. I am bleeding most of the time these days or spotting / bleeding heavy at tines and clotting etc. I am so confused is it my age ? or the implant ? Or both. I also have a lot of stress in my life and am now worried about losing my partner as we can very rarely have sex. I am starting to get depressed about this now. I do not want a mirena iud i just want this bleeding to stop.

    It's definitely the implant. I had one for the full 3 years and everything about it was awful. I had no period for the first year and then after that I had periods that lasted for MONTHS. I gained a bunch of weight, I was mad and tired all the time. I would cry at any moment. I got the Mirena IUD and I'm much happier with it, no period at all! Good luck.
