I originally got this implant because I'm terrible at remembering to take the pill, so I thought it would be perfect for me. However, now its a few months later, I've gained 15+ pounds, my clothes don't fit. I work out too 3-5 days a week and I'm not a horrible eaters. The birth control part is great! However, I've also been getting terrible migraines that last for days, and I& ... Show Full Comment

Went in fairly easy; significant bruising. Had it removed after less than a month due to constant spotting, soreness, fatigue, & most notably, emotional disregulation. I either had flat affect or was very irritable. My OB/GYN took it out without question. Not the birth control for me.

Comment:
Nexplanon is defiantly an effective birth control. But the side effects are not worth it to me. I would much rather take a pill everyday until I am ready to have children.

I am much more emotional and get irritated ra ... Show Full Comment
