Haven't been on it long, but my anxiety has been sky high recently and I'm experiencing awful mood swings. I cant even have a good cry to relieve some of it.

The good news is I'm not pregnant, although Im considering having my implant removed if it doesn't improve.

I was warned about that I may bleed "up to 3 months" prior to getting it inserted.I was terrible with the pill, so I got it anyway. I began bleeding about a week after insertion. Waited it out, and after 3 months, I made an appointment and was p ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The nexplanon does work to prevent pregnancy but the menstral bleeding is terrible. I started bleeding a month after it was put in. I have been on it for over a year and a half now and have been bleeding almost the entire time. Not all women bleed while on nexplanon but it has been horrible for me personally. My libido is so much lower that I very rarely want intercourse and it has caused mood swi ... Show Full Comment
