Abstract

A common problem with etonogestrel contraceptive implants is irregular bleeding, for which women are often unprepared despite adequate pre-insertion advice. Dickson et al.’s commentary is a useful summary of management options. It will refresh readers’ ability to deal with this problem and it's a reminder to avoid ‘watchful waiting’, which risks women losing confidence in this highly effective contraceptive method.
