So suddenly, I have some acne and a discharge that previously I would have assumed was ovulation (clear, light, stribgy, no smell). Could that be a sign that the implanon stopped working? Luckily, I read that the thin lining of the uterus on implanon can still protect you even if you ovulate, but I do.'t knowhow long that lasts.

HI amandalynn27,

With the hormones in the Implanon, it's likely that your body will do some different things from what it usually does; so, side symptoms that meant one thing before you got the implant most likely mean something different now. Given the high effectiveness of this method, I wouldn't immediately suspect ovulation here. Of course, if you are concerned about the functioning of your implant, consulting the healthcare provider who put it in would be a good first step. [Smile]
