I have had Nexplanon for almost a year. I've not stopped bleeding since it was inserted in June 2014, it's now May 2015. It's given me very bad mood swings, to the point where my husband and I almost got a divorce. I've gained thirty pounds since it was inserted, and my eating habits have only improved. I am a full time nurse and I also work part time in a pharmacy so I walk at lea ... Show Full Comment

I had it inserted at no cost because under the Affordable Care Act, you should not have to pay a cent for it. The first couple of months were rough. I had mood swings and I was bleeding a little bit all the time. They say it can take up to six months for your body to adjust and this is normal for Progestin only birth control. My uncle is a OB/GYN and he really put things in perspective for ... Show Full Comment

I have zero sex drive, and increased acne. For a long time I thought all of this was either unrelated or ... Show Full Comment

I got my implant on 1/15/15. 2 weeks later i started spotting and never stopped. I have really bad cramps and lower back pain. I have gained 15 pounds in under 4 months.The weight has to come from the BC because I have cleaned up my diet and I exercise daily but I'm more bloated as the days go on. My moods are 90% on the not so good side, almost any little thing seems to set me off. In the las ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had this inserted in April 2013, it is now may 2015. Right away I noticed I wasn't feeling "right", depression, anxiety, which I had always suffered but I was better and working toward a happy life at the time of insertion. I began feeling detached and irritable, and lost my libido almost completely to where my marriage fell apart. I have been reading these reviews, and like most o ... Show Full Comment
