Comment:
I had Implanon inserted on 1/14/09 and have been incredibly pleased with it. I had to use it because I cannot take birth control that contains estrogen, so my options were limited. First of all, the insertion was nearly painless and I only had some moderate soreness and swelling for the first week or two. I had about 10 days of light spotting when I switched from the Ortho pill to Implanon, and ha ... Show Full Comment

I have had, and i am still having a horrible experience with this medication. Before implanon i was thirty pounds lighter, more outgoing, and had LESS FACIAL HAIR. The mood swings and the constant torment of looking into the mirror to see what this drug has done to me is so painful.

I thought it was the week-long cruise I went on, adn figured I'd drop that extra 5 lbs after I got back home and ate normally again... wrong! I gained even more weight after I quit eating 24/7 and finally I realized it could be my Implanon, which I got in I think September of 08 and I'm g ... Show Full Comment

Wow I am so relieved to read all these reviews! I thought I was the only one suffering from depression, anxiety, erratic mood swings, complete loss of sex drive (I’m only 20 so that was devastating for my relationship), bloating, and severe body aches. Luckily my hair is ok but my skin has been pretty bad, not sure if that’s my age or the implant. I have no period at all so I don’t know when the m ... Show Full Comment

When I first had it inserted, I bled for three straight months but after that, I have not had a period since. I haven't experienced any significant weight gain or hair loss. I do have weird hot flashes and sometimes the spot where the rod is itches but other than that I am completely happy!
