Nexplanon and bleeding 😔

I had my nexplanon fitted in January 2015. Before this, I had the injection for around 3 years. I haven't had a period since I started with the injections, so it's been about 4 years since a bleed.

For the past few weeks I've been feeling really not myself, exhausted, major mood swings and really sore breasts etc. Last week I started spotting which really threw me. I had a drs appt today and mentioned it, and she has asked me to go back in for cervical swabs in case of infection. Is she talking about an STI? This never crossed my mind at the time and would only be possible if DP has slept around. Has anybody else had a similar experience with nexplanon? I'm so confused as to what has caused this random bleeding! Any help would be appreciated smile

I got bleeding after 7 years but it coincided with some weight gain, now I've gone back to a "normal" weight I have no bleeding any more.

Had anything else changed about you?

Thank you both!

Blue - I've gradually lost weight recently but didn't have any bleeding at my heaviest either. It came as such a shock I almost jumped off the loo!
