I got the implant in August 2012 and it is now March 2013. The first period I had after the fitting I bled for about 18 days straight. After the bleeding finished I had spotting here and there. Now I have no periods and I'm loving it. I have gained some weight, maybe 15 pounds. It's very convenient, you forget it's there. I have a small scar at the insertion site, but nothing noticeabl ...

I don't like the pr ... Show Full Comment

I will be having the implant removed coming up within the next few weeks. Have had it for 2 months now, but I'd rather take the pill every day. Area stayed real sore for about 2 weeks after having it inserted, then I bled for about 3 weeks. Since then, haven't had any bleeding, but I've noticed that I put on some weight and here recently my hair has started falling out.

I've had this in for about a month now. I was on the IUD, but I kept bleeding and decided to switch to this. The first week I was bleeding as if it were a regular period. Wasn't a big deal since I was already bleeding, I just noticed that it had gotten heavier. Anyways, after about a week, my period went extremely light, then finally disappeared. I haven't had bleeding since. The injec ... Show Full Comment
