I'm a single mom, recently started seeing someone & didn't want to risk having any more children. Had Nexplanon put in beginning of Nov 2013. Chose this method as I'm not good at remembering to take birth control pills... Had just finished my period, and haven't had any bleeding at all since having it put in. Which I love, hoping it stays that way. The insertion wasn't a ... Show Full Comment

I went in and go the Nexplanon simply because I am sexually active. I haven't been on birth control for months, and was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend. When I got the Nexplanon I was on my period. My OB told me to come in when I was on it to have it inserted. Course I was bruised around the sight.

My only side effect so far is feeling angry more often than ... Show Full Comment

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

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.
