I was to point out that everyone reacts differently to all types of prescription drugs. Case in point, my sister-in-law loves having hers. She has had implanon/nexplanon for 7 years now and have very little complains. However, I had nexplanon implanted just a little over a year ago and my side effects were absolutely horrible. As far as it work to prevent pregnancy it did that, but I had a horribl ... Show Full Comment

This was the worst decision ever. Had it for about 10 months and absolutely hated it. Had two periods a month with random spotting in between. Outrageous mood swings to the point where I would scare myself for being so angry or emotional. Random cramping and the spot where it was in my arm gave off a dull achey feeling. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you are okay with constant random ... Show Full Comment

I have been on the pill since 2010, and i am not stable with it at all, i forge to take it and things like that. We decided this w ... Show Full Comment

I have had mine in for just over 2 years and I love it. Totally took away my migraines for the first year and a half (environmental changes brought them back unfortunately) and I have had few symptoms (much better than excruciatingly painful periods that send me to the hospital). My husband and I are not planning on getting pregnant for at least another few years, so I will be getting another one ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
For the first two years this was the best thing ever because I didn't have to worry about taking a pill daily or changing a weekly patch. But a few months past my two month mark of having it (about month 27), I had my cycle for the first time in six months and it lasted the entire month of September. When I called my OBGYN, she suggested removing it because it may not work as well as it used t ... Show Full Comment
