This is the perfect product for me. I've had about a year. The first month I had my period for 2 weeks and haven't had it since.

I don't have to worry about taking a pill every morning and it lasts for 3 years.

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 have such bad acne that it is scarring my face, i have no self esteem, i don't want to go out into public beac ... Show Full Comment
