This birth control is the WORST thing that has ever happened to me. I have gained 10 pounds in ONE month. I have been the same weight for 3 years and this is the only thing I am doing differently. I am breaking out on my face and chest. I am always spotting and if I'm not spotting its because I am having a 10 day period with the worst cramps ever. With the weight gain, acne, and constant spott ... Show Full Comment

The effectiveness has been amazing. But as far as the "side effects", I don't know how much more I can take. I have a period every other week and I mean a period, not just spotting. This last one has lasted about 8 days so far. I've called my doctor and they keep saying "wait one more month." I've had it in for almost 7 months. Any suggestions?

I have now had the Nexplanon for 4 months and have had this CONSTANT itching at the injection site. It's so bothersome that I'm ready to have it removed.

Comment:
I had the nexplanon put in about 3 months ago and so far I am satisfied with it. All birth controls have there pros and cons but as far as not getting pregnant right now is my number one concern and it is doing it's job. I have maybe had 1 normal period and 3 other occasions of spotting but from what I understand that is to be expected within the first 6 months. My cramps are normal, my moods ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had Nexplanon inserted about two and a half months ago. I was terrified to get it after reading all the negative reviews about it, but and IUD wasn't an option for me, and I wanted a long-term birth control so I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did. Previously, I was on the Nuvaring for several years, and had been using them back-to-back for about 8 months prior to getting Nexplanon ... Show Full Comment
