Anyone else use Implanon?

I just got Implanon inserted today and was wondering if anyone else has or is using this form of birth control. What are your likes and dislikes and when did you get your next period? Was it on time?

  • I just got it inserted for the second time last week. I used it for the 3 years the first time and got it removed when I was ready for another child and I got pregnant just 2 months later. My likes would be that I still get regular periods, no weight gain, easy to insert and take out. My dislikes would be that my periods were sometimes a little longer but not heavier, and right now with my 2nd insertion it hurt a little more because the doctor said there was some scar tissue from before. Other than that this will be the birth control I will be sticking to for many years.

  • Its an implant that goes into your arm and is good for 3 years. I don't know to much about it and if it helps with cysts.
