I'm on Implanon for the second time. The only side effect I've experienced has been long periods, but not necessarily heavy ones. The first time I had Implanon I had it for the whole 3 years then removed it and got pregnant within 2 months. This second time that the rod went in my arm it hurt a bit more and had more swelling and my doctor said that it was because of the scar tissue from the last implant. Anyway, other than the long period I have had no other side effects. This is definitely a birth control that I'm sticking with.
