Unlike the other comments this BC has helped me with my periods i no longer get them and when i do its nothing.

I used to be on Depo-Pravara, so when I was offered Nexplanon by my new OBGYN, I figured- why not! I got the implant done back in November of 2014. It was pretty interesting watching as the doctor used her tools to place the implant perfectly under the skin on the inner part of my bicep. I kept the gauze on as instructed for 24 hours. There was a big bruise, but it's understandable why it ... Show Full Comment

Nexplanon was the WORST. My hormones were way out of whack, I experienced severe dizziness, extreme nausea, horrific headaches, and suffered severe allergic reactions to nearly EVERYTHING — food, lotions, fragrances, etc. Once I had the implant removed, it's been nearly a year long journey to normalcy, but I can finally move on with my life without having to worry about daily anaphylaxis react ...

I had a horrible response to the hormones and my skin broke out horribly. I've never had such horrible breakouts like cystic pimples in my life. I had a good experience with IMPLANON but for some reason this BC replaced the Implanon. I am dealing with scarring now and getting my hormones balanced 8 months later. I am more than happy to take a pill daily if I don't have to go through that.

Easy to have implanted BUT be careful. I had a horrific reaction to the progestin exactly at the 6 wk mark when it reached it's max dosage and for 5 weeks after that had blurred vision, dizziness, confusion, low grade headache that would increase in intensity to a migraine on and off WHOLE time, not to mention the impact it had on my moods! I saw multiple Drs. of different specialities, but I ... Show Full Comment
