running out of pads

I'm 20 years old on Implanon (for 10 months). I had a baby and hemorrhaged after delivery, after 6 weeks my doctor put me on seasonique to stop me from bleeding, I took it for 6 months then stopped because it was causing me nausea and didn't seem to be helping. I still had a period every single day. A few months ago (after my daughter's 1st birthday) my periods started to even out, the third week of every month for a week. Well, this month has been different. I have been bleeding for 2 weeks with no end in sight. This hasn't happened since starting Implanon so long ago. Do you think it is just Implanon or something more serious? I exercise, but not to excess and I eat very healthy. I do well to manage my stress and it seems that if I lay down most of the day it slows and almost stops but then when I get up it starts up again, it also get worse if I stay up all day without resting.

You seem to be having the symptoms of menometrorrhagia. Various factors causing it are endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy, hormone imbalance,endometrial hyperplasia, polyps, use of IUD’s and depo shots, sexually transmitted diseases, PCOS and benign and malignant pathologies of the uterus. What you are having is metrorrhagia due to Mirena IUD.
I would advise an gynecologist’s evaluation and an ultrasound uterus to ruled out the above possibilities.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Thank you, I have an ultrasound today to rule out ectopic pregnancy. I do not have any STD's, I was checked last year during pregnancy. I would like to keep Implanon in if possible. They ruled out infection, Thyroid problems, and anemia yesterday. I have been bleeding for 5 weeks now and the pain was starting to wake me up at night, so I figured it is best to see a doctor.
