    I have has this implant since June 24th, 2015; I HATE IT! I had recently lost some weight and when I got the implant I gained it all back, plus some! I have been bleeding what seems to be old blood since August and it is DECEMBER! Anyone who is thinking of getting this implant, DON'T! It may not have the same effect on you, but these side effects are not worth it. I get really moody, weight ga ... Show Full Comment

    I got Nexplanon about two months ago and so far I really love it. When I first got it, I had a very large bruise on my arm from insertion but that went away very quickly. The only bad side affect I can complain about so far is irregular bleeding and spotting that lasts for long amounts of time, and goes away only for couple of days to a week. Nexplanon is VERY effective. I recommend it to anyone w ... Show Full Comment

    I've had my implant in for 2 months now and have had a very positive experience. I had a very light period about 2 weeks after insertion for 5 days and no bleeding since. I've had a couple of days of cramping/nausea and a couple of hormonal moody days but overall it's been excellent! I think my body is getting used to the different hormones but I am so much happier not having to take ( ... Show Full Comment

    I have had this implant since February 17th, 2015. I have been moody and have had my period numerous times. Sometimes it has been 9 weeks long. I am trying to keep it in for a year but this period thing has got to go. I used to get really unmanageable awful cramps while on my period but now I do not get them. Everytime my boyfriend and I would have sex, the period starts right after. It's the ... Show Full Comment

    I just got the Nexplanton in the first days of September and it is now November, I didn't get any bruising or extreme pain where the implant was inserted. I got a period about two weeks after I got the implant and it was very very light for about four days. Every since that I've spotted for about two days but no period. This is the easiest form of birth control in my opinion. There's n ... Show Full Comment
