I hate this thing! I feel like crap all the time. I have had it in for 7 months and I have gained 35lbs and am still gaining weight. I eat super healthy and work out at least once a day. I do not recommend this to anyone! I am getting it taken out on the 15th.

My goodness. I thought I was the only one experiencing all these horrible side effects. My implanon was inserted July of 2008. I had it removed December 31, 2008. At first, it was great.

The first 2 months were great. I had no period as I was nursing. However, the last 4 months have been completely crappy. My periods last anywhere from 1-4 weeks with manybe a 1 week reprieve in between...if I'm lucky. I'm moody and irritable and am interested in another method!

I have had Implanon for a little over a year and the only thing I like about this bc is that I don't have to remember a pill everyday. My periods don't last days, they last months and it's moderate to heavy bleeding. My side effects include: severe cramps, mood swings, NO sex drive, larger and sore breasts, more than normal acne, and severe migranes. I chose this method because it w ... Show Full Comment
