Got it 3/6/15 because finally decided I wanted to start having sex. I chose Nexplanon because it's hard to take daily pills with my constantly changing schedule, and the IUD option my hospital had was made just for women who already had kids. So the implant was my only choice. The first 2 weeks were a pain! I had mood swings and dizziness, and ppl who pumped in me made my arm hurt to the point ... Show Full Comment

I have been on the Nexplanon since 08/08/14 and I thought I was going to have a few problems, but it is actually great. I had a problem with my first period when I started; From the end of Aug to mid Sept my period was on for 18 days! It was ridiculous, and it was nonstop. But in Oct I had a normal period, and it was the last time I had a normal period. The pattern seems to skip a period every oth ... Show Full Comment

I had it inserted 10/2013 so it's been 16 months. Insertion was quick and without incident. I quickly healed with minimal pain for a few days. I've since had two menstrual periods. The first one was more like spotting that lasted a couple weeks on and off then nothing for 11 months. Then a regular 5 day period and nothing since. I don't like the unpredictability but I really cannot com ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I got this to have birth control I didn't need to think about. The insertion process was VERY fast... maybe five minutes? They numbed the area with a lidocaine shot, and injected the implant... after, they placed a compression bandage and strips over it, and told me I could take ibuprofen if I needed. I actually didn't bother... it did hurt, but it was more a dull ache throughout my upper ... Show Full Comment
