I have been on Implanon since April 2008 and I have had a great experience with it. I am a 32 year old African-American in decent shape. I got on Implanon because I was tired of taking the pill and I did not care for the Nuvaring. For the first 3 months I had very light periods during the time I was suppose to come on.
