Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query,

Implanon is effective for 3 years and it can cause amenorrhoea for these 3 years offering you contraceptive protection. Now after 3 years the efficacy tends to get reduced and its possible that the levels have gone down and the body is initiating a withdrawal bleed. The symptoms that you are experiencing are premenstrual symptoms which indicate that you may have a withdrawal bleed soon and you would have to consider removal of the implant and opt for a fresh one.
However, if there exists a doubt regarding pregnancy then a urine pregnancy test should be done to rule out pregnancy before undertaking any measures.
I hope I have answered your concerns in detail,

Wishing you good health,
Regards
