Had the Implanon implant for 3 years and then switched to Nexplanon. Became pregnant a month after the switch. About 8 and a half months along. I recommend still practicing safer techniques or abstinence.

I've had my Nexplanon for a 1 1/2 years and I love it!

This is when it ... Show Full Comment

I see the negative comments, but here's a positive one. I'm on my last year of it and I love it! At first I was having the weird periods that some people described so I talk to my GYN and they prescribed me an additional pill to take when I have my period to make it go away (extra dose of progesterone). That has helped tremendously. I have maybe 1-2 periods/year and thank god because my cr ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This form of birth control seemed very appealing at first because the ease of not having to take a pill every day. It was great for about the first year. My periods were very infrequent and short. They were also very light. After about a year, my periods began to lengthen and the started to get heavier. I now have them for 20-30 days at a time and I only get like 4 days of a break in between. They ... Show Full Comment
