The Implanon was put in my arm in January 08 and the most I can remember from the birth control is having one period that was extremely heavy with moderate cramping.

IT DID DECREASE THE NUMBER OF PERIODS.. HOWEVER IT CAUSED EACH PERIOD TO LAST APPROX. 15-21 DAYS. I HAD TO BE PUT ON ESTROGEN TWICE. DECIDED TO HAVE IT REMOVED AFTER THE 6 MONTH POINT. FIGURED SINCE I HAD TO TAKE A PILL ALONG SIDE THE IMPLANT, IT REALLY WASN'T WORTH IT. THE ADDED JOLT OF HORMONES ON A IRREGULAR BASIS WAS TOO MUCH FOR MY BODY.
