Symptoms that you describe can be normal in the first 6 months of having an implant, but if theyve not settled after 18 months, they're unlikely to.
You can either choose to have the implant removed and try something else, or use a low dose contraceptive pill in addition to the implant to control the bleeding and cramps.

If your GP isn't up to speed, try seeing another Dr at the practice - look on their website and see if anyone has DFFP or DFSRH after their name ( these are specific family planning qualifications), or otherwise try your local family planning clinic.
