hi my name is Claudia, well my situation is little different, my period has being irregular for 2/3 years I have took birth control to regulate. at first my doc only suggest for 3 months, if it works I wouldn't need it. but it didn't, so after another 3 month without it, I took again for 3 more months, first month without birth control was ok, but it got irregular again. so I took again and now I took it for 6 months, I was getting married and 2 weeks before my honeymoon, I took Implanon, Norplant, my period started a week after was supposed to come, which I thought maybe its nothing, but it continued to come more then 7 days, it continue for two weeks and was gone, felt bad for my husband, since was going to be our first time. (I know everyone did before marriage but to me and him it would mean a lot)
my doctor never understood why would my period be irregular in first place. she did what she could, but until now I never found out why. hopefully my next new doctor can help me with it. because it already being my third time and right now I'm having my period for 3 weeks, its not bleeding a lot it almost as it was ending. so I suggest in case anyone has same experience see a specialist just because not every doc knows a lot. hopefully it helps anyone, I am still trying to find out whats rong with my harmones and I will let u know when I found out. thank u and keep healthy. :)

I had my norplant in for the full 5 years. I never had a period the entire time it was in. It took 10 years after it was out for my periods to become normal and I did become pregnant after that point. I KNOW it was the norplant. That is the least of the effects the norplant had on my life. Ruined my youth.
