    Bruise faded away within a week, it is a great birth control method, just have had non stop bleeding, mood swings, and craving all the time, constantly wanting to eat now, which is probably increasing weight gain , pretty much feels like your always on your period , hopefully the bleeding stops

    I really, really wanted to like Nexplanon. I've had this implant in my arm for the past 2 and 1/2 years and the only benefit I have reaped is that I am not pregnant.

    I have had nexplanon for a year now, I waited to write the review to give it a fair chance.

    Getting the nexplanon placed was very easy and painless. I did get a bruise (which you're supposed to) but it wasn't as big as I thought it would be and it went away within a week.
