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.

I am satisfied with the birth control. I would recommend you d ... Show Full Comment

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.
