Implant and the patch

OK so i got the implant in my arm a day before thanksgiving and i have been on my period ever since...i went to the doctor yesterday and she told me that she wouldn't take the implant out until my three years are up.. instead she gave me a prescription for the birth control patch. she told me that after using the patch with my implant that my period should completely stop after 6 weeks.. has anybody else done this?? how do you use the patch?? thank you
