The nexplanon does work to prevent pregnancy but the menstral bleeding is terrible. I started bleeding a month after it was put in. I have been on it for over a year and a half now and have been bleeding almost the entire time. Not all women bleed while on nexplanon but it has been horrible for me personally. My libido is so much lower that I very rarely want intercourse and it has caused mood swi ... Show Full Comment

I read a lot of research before having the Nexplanon inserted, knowing the results would be all across the board for bleeding.

I've had my insert for 3 years and have just recently had it removed and replaced. The first three years, I had NO problems with it whatsoever.

I have had nexplanon for a year now. I have gotten bad acne and the spotting/bleeding NEVER STOPS. I am spotting more than I am not. I have gone to get it taken out three times and each time the doctor convinces me to keep it in because of its effectiveness. I am not sure how much longer I can take it. I can tell it has also affected my moods and made me more emotional than usual also.
