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.

I had the nexplanon put in about 3 months ago and so far I am satisfied with it.

It rarely stops and is the most annoying and stupidest side effect on earth! ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Since I was 16 I have tried combination pill, depo shot, and Mirena IUD. I have had three successful pregnancies (c-section,VBAC,c-section) in between birth controls, never gotten pregnant on one. Every form of birth control caused weight gain or made it hard to lose weight and moodiness. Mirena practically fell out during an exam, but I was glad as the cramping and depression were rough.
