I had the Nexplanon for 10 months because that's all I could endure.

Now that I have it out, I am having an issue with my nervous system in my arms. :(

The contraption my doctor used to insert it really scared me but I couldn't feel a thing. When I first got it my arm really hurt, but it's inserted in a place where it can't be easily bumped or touched by anyone else, so that ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I got the Nexplanon at the beginning of May 2013, one of the reasons I chose this form of birth control was because I was still breastfeeding my 6 month old and the hormones aren't supposed to interfere with milk production. I had spotting every couple weeks for 2 or 3 days, so a little annoying when it happens out of nowhere. Over the last month I gained a few pounds, but I know that is due t ... Show Full Comment
