I have has Nexplanon inserted for about 8 months now and am very happy with it. I had virtually no side effects except for irregular periods.

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 ...

This was the worst decision ever. Had it for about 10 months and absolutely hated it. Had two periods a month with random spotting in between.

I would not recommend this to anyone unless you are okay with constant random ... Show Full Comment

I have been on the pill since 2010, and i am not stable with it at all, i forge to take it and things like that. We decided this w ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have had mine in for just over 2 years and I love it. Totally took away my migraines for the first year and a half (environmental changes brought them back unfortunately) and I have had few symptoms (much better than excruciatingly painful periods that send me to the hospital). My husband and I are not planning on getting pregnant for at least another few years, so I will be getting another one ... Show Full Comment
