Comment:
Ive had Implanon for a little over a year now and I love it. I dont have my period at all, which is my only worry for blood clots but since its not implanted in my woman parts im not too worried. I don't have much acne but I also do eat a really healthy diet (Vegan). But I find that if I do give in and eat less healthy items, mostly fried foods, I start to break out then. I haven't gained ...

I love the easy use, and is clearly effective. But as a headache sufferer, it has been rough. The side effects I struggle with are nausea, headaches, and spotty bleeding problems. I'm a year and a half in to the 3 years and I'm ready to remove it. Sick of the nausea and headaches.

This is the worst experience I have ever had with birth control and I a ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
My doctor was very positive about this birth control so I decided to give it a try. I wish I hadn't. I have gained 30 pound despite no change in diet or excercise, have uncontrollable acne, periods 3+weeks out of the month, mood swings, and almost daily headaches. I am getting it taken out this week. While I know birth control effects everyone differently, if you are overly sensitive to birth ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am very active, working out 2 times a day as well as eating healthy. However, I couldn't lose the rest of the baby weight after getting it. I've had 1 week on, 1 week off periods since I got this in April. I also had horrendous mood changes/swings. I was easily irritated but now I get furious. And then it'll crash into being upset with myself and go into a depression. I personally wo ... Show Full Comment
