    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. My hair was falling out by the handfuls, and my doctor said it wasn't related, but I know so ... Show Full Comment

    When I first recieved bc it was ok the first three days.In november I got it put in and it is now december, I want to stop bleeding. Yhea, it works because your man don't want you if you are bleeding and moody everyday. I don't like 7 days, but 7 sound better than 5 weeks. I am getting it taken out on January 9.

    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

    The first two months on Implanon were great. No periods and no troubles. The past three months I have had three periods in one month, very irregular bleeding at unknown timing and very strong periods within the last few weeks. I am meeting my OBGYN in a couple weeks to remove and switch methods.
