Different reaction to implant second time around

I was on the implant from 2012-2015 and found it increased the frequency of my periods by double but they were much lighter and didn't cause any cramps.
This year I decided to go back onto the implant and after 3 months my period seems to have stopped completely. I am 4 weeks late now...
Just wondered if anyone else has experienced different reactions to the same drug? It was inserted slightly further down my arm than before and was done by a different clinic, but not sure if this would change my reaction to it.
Thanks for any advice.

I had the implant put in in March, not had it before. But have not had a period at all since. Hope that helps. Maybe do a test to put your mind at rest?

1st implant - in for 3 years no bleeding at all.
2nd - first 6 months I had regular spotting then a period every quarter which would last a week, then have around 3 days off. Then back on for 5-7days
3rd - had it in for 5 months. One period after it went in, nothing since!

All were put in straight after the other. The last in a different place.

I wouldn't worry smile

Strange though isn't it!

Thanks for the replies smile
I did do a test to make sure and it came out negative but felt it was strange compared to how I reacted last time...
Glad to see its not just me who reacted differently then! Can put my mind at rest and relish in the fact the implant has had a positive impact on my periods this time! Woo!
Thanks again smile
