Help I'm freaking out

So I'm a 20 year old virgin and have been on implanon twice currently on the third year of my second one. I don't know my cycle since I haven't had a period on it only after its removed. So about December ninth I my breasts started feeling sore. On the 21_23 I had this weird bleeding I guess. It started out as a faint red dot when I wiped but the second and third day it was red and brown. Now my breasts are killing me and I have blue veins present on my breasts. My friend told me to take a prego test to the doctors to show her, I took three all in different days and all were negative. I'm not sure what to think of any of this. I'm worried. Oh and before this started I had dried white stuff in my underwear like dried discharge. I'm sure I'm not pregnant but what else could this be?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with your concern about breast discomfort and unusual vaginal spotting.

It appears that both symptoms might be associated with Implanon, which is an etonogestrel implant used to prevent pregnancy.

The most common side effect of IMPLANON® is a change in your normal menstrual bleeding pattern. In studies, about one out of ten women stopped using the implant because of an unfavorable change in their bleeding pattern. You may experience longer or shorter bleeding during your periods or have no bleeding at all. The time between periods may vary, and in between periods you may also have spotting.

Breast pain is another commonly reported side effect.

Anonymous, consider speaking with your gynecologist about this.
