I hated it for the first wee while, I seemed to get period every couple of weeks and often bled for much longer than a normal period.
It got gradually better but I still wasn't happy and started taking the pill to try and sort my periods out. Had normal periods while on it and now hoping that it's reset things.
I think if I were you I'd stick it out a few months and see how it goes, chances are it'll get a lot better and if not then the pill might work for you too.
For someone as forgetful as me the convenience is really worth it. Also, your fertility apparently comes back very quickly after it's removed so I'm told, so if you're planning on having more kids (as I am) I think it's supposed to be quite a good option.
I have an implant. was told that periods would be unpredictable for about 3 months and should then have no bleeding and to get in touch if I did. They were right was a bit annoying at first but it did settle down and have no problems now.
i had mine fitted in june 05 and things were okish to start off with but then after about a year i would get the most awful discharge before my period was due and started loosing clots etc - was not pleasant. had it in for the three years and as soon as it was taken out everything went back to normal.
there seems to be a lot of people having them out. i would not have had it in if id known id be bleeding like this was told a few spots is all id have and im on a proper period with the most painful cramps ive ever felt.
