Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.

I understand your concern.

Do you have lower abdominal pain?

Did the bleeding start after sex?

Any bleeding from gums? In stools?

It's easier for me to message than call

Alright. This sounds like a side effect of contraceptive implant. It should still be very effective and I don't believe you can get pregnant before 3 years. Unscheduled bleeding can occur even after a couple of years. We can't really predict that. It's usually self limited but you may take Tablet Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice daily for 3 days to make it settle.
