Comment:
Did this drug contribute to my breast cancer? I had implanon inserted in June 2008 to alleviate my anxieties about forgetting to take the pill (was waking up paranoid in the middle of the night!).

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. I had a normal period for the first three months, then it stopped. I haven't seen Aunt Flow since early October.
