    i am 19 and have two children so i decided to get the implanon because i wouldnt have to worry about getting pregnant. i have had weird periods bloating severe cravings and my hair has fallen out. i am considering other options now. if u want a quick birth control method its good for that but consider the side effects first and not after like i did.
