  • I use implanon since mid last year, my periods have become very light and almost gone. For the first two wks that implanon was implanted I had hot and cold flashes And mood swings but after that my body got use to it and I haven't had that happen ever again. I haven't had any pregnancies or problems so I think it's great.

  •  I had the Mirena IUD for nearly 3 years and it was AWFUL (countless side effects, most of which were life-altering - and NOT in a good way)..the only good things about it were I no longer got my period after the first year of getting it and stayed baby-free! lol. When I finally decided to get rid of it, I considered the Implanon, but decided to get the Paragard (copper IUD, lasts twice as long as the Mirena, and non-hormonal). I've had it over a month now and so far, I LOVE it! If I had known about it when I got the Mirena, I'd have chosen the Paragard instead and saved myself a lot of pain, discomfort, and weight gain (just a few of the side effects I'd mentioned).

  • I have mirena, and so far so good. I'm still in the early spotting stage of it, and that part kind of sucks, but I haven't really noticed any other effects. We will see about efficacy here in about a week lol
