    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. The only side effect that I have noticed is that I'm losing a little bit more hair than before having Implanon inserted. I don't have to worry about taking a pill every morning and it lasts for 3 years.

    Comment:
    i am extremely pleased with the effectiveness and ease of implanon. Despite this i am having some odd symptoms such as a period one every two weeks, but that just started occuring. Also i have noticed a slight increase in acne at times, and in my weight(though other factors such as starting college a month after getting implanon may also play a factor). Other than these things it has helped so muc ... Show Full Comment

    I had Implanon inserted on 1/14/09 and have been incredibly pleased with it. I had to use it because I cannot take birth control that contains estrogen, so my options were limited. 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
