  • i don't have implanon, but i did have Mirena, an IUD and my doctor didn't want to take it out, but reluctantly did. And another of my friends was told by the doctor and the doctor's office that they would not removed it, and that the decision to have it removed was not up to her. So she went to the ER and requested it be removed.

  • yes they did. it was a pretty pricey visit, but she told them she was having issues and thought it may be due to that, and she wanted it taken out now, and they did it.

  • well i went in last thursday and they told me that i havent had it in long enough. They said that the symptoms i was having was 'in my head' (prescribing me prozac!!!) and I know thats bullshit because i have read all of the reviews of women having the SAME HORRIBLE SYMPTOMS. So my husband called and told a few people off so I have an appointment tomorrow to hopefully get it removed.
