I have had this for two years, my periods are messed up but I can deal with it just fine. I never miss more then two months and never have more than one period a month with some spotting. I have recently got some weight gained believed to be by this, but only a few pounds. I love not having to remember taking a pill, and will be get a new one put in when my time is up.

My experience so far with Implanon has been less than what I expected. I say that because I was initailly taking the injection deop-vera for two years and had no issues with it at all.

Before using any birth control I would only get my period for 3 days now I get spotting for two weeks and ... Show Full Comment
