I got the bar method birth control in my arm February 14th.

Customer Question
I got the bar...

I got the bar method birth control in my arm February 14th. I got my period beginning of March and it has lasted all month long. For several weeks I have had very dark brown blood in small quantities coming out. I am concerned because it is constant.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

No pain. My periods are usually very regular and last about a week.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I did have a medical abortion in December. Surgical. But I doubt that has anything to do with this..

Hi

Welcome to just answer

Abnormal bleeding after the bar birth control implant can occur in some females. It usually resolves in a few weeks. But if it continues, then patient might need an examination and a course of doxycycline antibiotic usually stops the bleeding. I would recommend you to wait for a few weeks for this to resolve. If there is no improvement, then consult your Ob-gynae for need of intervention.

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.
