This is the second time i have had an implant in my arm and i think it is the best form of birth control out there. The insertion is not bad at all.

I just wanted to leave a positive review because I have re ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This is a good birth control, in that it will prevent pregnancy in an effective way. You don't have to take a pill--the hormone is released from the implant on its own, so that is low maintenance. But this is a small advantage compared to the numerous disadvantages I've faced being on this medication less than a month. In just weeks my skin has become fifty times worse. I am on a prolonged ...

Comment:
I was to point out that everyone reacts differently to all types of prescription drugs. Case in point, my sister-in-law loves having hers. She has had implanon/nexplanon for 7 years now and have very little complains. However, I had nexplanon implanted just a little over a year ago and my side effects were absolutely horrible. As far as it work to prevent pregnancy it did that, but I had a horribl ... Show Full Comment
