    i have now had the implanon for just under 6 years. i found it fantastic for the 1st 3 years with barely a period and the second year the time in between started to shorten. i am due for a new one in a months time & have had my period (morderate) for the best part of 3 months. although I have experienced fatigue & weight gain i believe that this is worth getting

    At first I had my period everyday for a long time (3 mos) but now I have not had it for a while. For me it works great because I do not have to worry about taking a pill everyday since I am always busy.

I have not had a period since June 08. I have had some head aches but am not sure if it was the birth control. Though I was a little worried about not having periods.
