I have now been on Nexplenon for 1 year and 4 months, and as soon as the new year rolls around I will be getting it removed. Initially I had bleeding for about the 1st 6-8 weeks. During tha ...

I'm 5'0, 145 lbs and I started using Nexplanon on 10/4/14 (for about 3 months) It has been working marvelously so far but the comments make me fear for the years ahead.

Comment:
I have Nexplanon implanted nearly a year ago. The insertion was easy and I had minimal bruising. In the past 12 months I have had maybe 2 or 3 periods.
