I have taken a few birth controls but this was by far the worse. I had it a year and within then first Month I became horribly paranoid and suicidal. I also developed a loss of feeling in my arm and tingling. I would never wish that year of depression on anyone ever. I also developed horrible migraines. It works different for everyone but I had a horrible time with it. I have been off of it 2 week ... Show Full Comment

I've had Implanon for almost 3 years now. No pregnancies. However, I was told that after one year, my period would stop and it never did. It made me extremely irregular. Period comes randomly, maybe every 2 months and usually lasts 3 weeks. Insertion was very easy. No pain. However, I decided to go on Implanon for two reasons: to prevent pregnancy and to stop my period. It only helped with one ... Show Full Comment

Didn't hurt to be put in just a small sting. I have had in for 12 months now. The first 6 months there was no period at all. The last 6 months there has been a period every 2 weeks for at least 4 days. Another thing i noticed is that I do also get sharp cramps from the implant site, only very occasionally but you defiantly do notice them.

I have had a bad experience with Implanon, mostly to do with my skin. I have had it for five months now and getting it taken out tonight. I have NEVER had any problems with my skin until I had Implanon put in. My skin has been really dry, lumpy, random red bumps popping up and going away and it has been stinging at times when I rub it or put moisturise on it. I still get bad period pains and rando ...
