Comment:
I have been using Nexplanon for 20 days. The insertion was painless, I only received a small bruise at the insertion site that dissipated at a normal rate. The insert is not noticeable.

I had my nexplanon implanted in the beginning of August 2013. I had a little bit of bleeding that month and then, starting September 2013, I bled for months non-stop (the same amount of bleeding for my normal period). I was told to wait it out, as it can take up to 3 months for your body to get used to it... but enough was enough. I had it removed today, December 9. I bled (non-stop) fr ... Show Full Comment

Haven't been on it long, but my anxiety has been sky high recently and I'm experiencing awful mood swings. I cant even have a good cry to relieve some of it. Ive been tired constantly and already gained 10 pounds eating less and more healthy than I was before. The good news is I'm not pregnant, although Im considering having my implant removed if it doesn't improve.

I was afraid to try this because of all the negative reviews but I went with it anyway and I'm so glad I did! The insertion was over before I knew it, and the needle they used was actually smaller than the needle used to donate blood. I was mostly afraid of bleeding a lot but I've been on it for awhile and had 2 normal periods and was supposed to have a period last week but it never came! ... Show Full Comment

I am a 21 year old female. I've had the nexplanon for about 15 months, and have had bleeding about 10 of those months. I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT. I was warned about that I may bleed "up to 3 months" prior to getting it inserted.I was terrible with the pill, so I got it anyway. I began bleeding about a week after insertion. Waited it out, and after 3 months, I made an appointment and was p ... Show Full Comment
