    I had my Nexplanon inserted in 2013, it's been 2 1/2 years and my experience has been very bad. I gave it more than enough time to settle and be able to figure out it doesn't work for me. I've experienced weight gain (i gained 12 kgs. which I just cannot lose), headaches, multiple periods per month (sometimes 4 periods per month, which make yourself so tired and of course has a negativ ...

    Unlike the other comments this BC has helped me with my periods i no longer get them and when i do its nothing. However after reading reviews this explains all the craziness my life has been the last two years of having it. After having my son i had it put in, and for the last two years i have struggled to lose the weight, i by far am no gym junkie but i would go consistently and watch what i ate ... Show Full Comment

    I used to be on Depo-Pravara, so when I was offered Nexplanon by my new OBGYN, I figured- why not! I got the implant done back in November of 2014. It was pretty interesting watching as the doctor used her tools to place the implant perfectly under the skin on the inner part of my bicep. I kept the gauze on as instructed for 24 hours. There was a big bruise, but it's understandable why it ... Show Full Comment

    Nexplanon was the WORST. My hormones were way out of whack, I experienced severe dizziness, extreme nausea, horrific headaches, and suffered severe allergic reactions to nearly EVERYTHING — food, lotions, fragrances, etc. Once I had the implant removed, it's been nearly a year long journey to normalcy, but I can finally move on with my life without having to worry about daily anaphylaxis react ...

    I had a horrible response to the hormones and my skin broke out horribly. I've never had such horrible breakouts like cystic pimples in my life. I had a good experience with IMPLANON but for some reason this BC replaced the Implanon. I am dealing with scarring now and getting my hormones balanced 8 months later. I am more than happy to take a pill daily if I don't have to go through that.
