Completely awful. Never stopped bleeding. My head always hurt, I couldn't stand up without being light headed. I lost 18 pounds from depression. I lost my life it felt like. My heart constantly hurt and felt like it was beating TOO fast. It made me have an unhappy life for 7 months. Do not get this, and read about it if you're thinking about it. It WILL change your mind.

I have taken a few birth controls but this was by far the worse. I had it a year and within then first Month I became horribly paranoid and suicidal.

It works different for everyone but I had a horrible time with it. I have been off of it 2 week ... Show Full Comment

Period comes randomly, maybe every 2 months and usually lasts 3 weeks. Insertion was very easy. No pain. However, I decided to go on Implanon for two reasons: to prevent pregnancy and to stop my period. It only helped with one ... Show Full Comment

Didn't hurt to be put in just a small sting. I have had in for 12 months now. The first 6 months there was no period at all. The last 6 months there has been a period every 2 weeks for at least 4 days. Another thing i noticed is that I do also get sharp cramps from the implant site, only very occasionally but you defiantly do notice them.
