I got Nexaplannon on 3/6/13. I have been bleeding since 3/11/13. I have stopped for a week total. I went to the doctor Monday for stomach pains. My doctor said I had an ovarian cyst rupture. She said if I am still bleeding in a month I should get it taken out. I don't want another baby for another 3 years, its one of the reasons I choose this. Has anyone else had this and had to get it taken out or had any problems?
I haven't had any issues with it. I've had it since November 2012. Cysts are a very common side effect of it and many other hormonal birth controls. If you want something more long term like that your other options are IUDs.
