I'm 49 & rarely get my periods - last Sept 2014, then Feb

Customer Question
Hi there, I'm 49 &...
Hi there, I'm 49 & rarely get my periods - last Sept 2014, then Feb 2015 & recently May/June2015 & they are very light only lasting a couple of days. I'm not taking any form of contraception at the moment. I'm wanting to go ahead with an Implanon insertion & have an appointment booked for next Wed, 12th Aug & don't have a period & not really sure if/when I might get another one. How soon after insertion next Wed will I be covered for contraception & be safe to have intercourse? Look forward to your response? Thank you Victoria

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
