I've decided to just not be on birth control at all. Condoms and NFP will be my thing ;)"Yeah I think I'm definitely going to get it taken out. I got it implanted because I was breastfeeding at the time and I thought it would be really convenient to not have to worry about taking a pill every day. But having issues like this with my period is way more inconvenient then having to remember to take a pill everyday. Plus I have been having pretty bad mood swings. I had to be put on Zoloft because I was having anxiety attacks 2-3 times a weeks. I thought it was because I'm no longer working full time and just had too much spare time, so I was worrying about everything. But now I'm starting to wonder if it's the Nexplanon making me that way.

Good luck momma "Wow...your doctor sounds like an ass if he wouldn't remove it because you had irregular bleeding. Plus having to take another kind of birth control while having Implanon/Nexplanon seems stupid to me. I don't want to have to be on 2 different kinds of birth control just to have a normal period. I have a really good doctor tho, so I'm sure she'll agree that I should have it taken out. If she doesn't, then I'll find a doctor that will.
Quoting xTJ:" I bled every single day for 6 months before I gave up and got it removed, I hate it."Wow...I don't see how you kept it for 6 months with bleeding everyday. I could not have done that.
