I have had my implanon for a little over a year and I absolutly hate it!! I gain weight and cant lose it, Im extremely moody, I get bad migrains, I just dont feel like my self. Problem? I have no insurance and literally just lost my job 2 weeks ago and trying to find another one. There is no place around here that will take it out for under 150. Im starting to go insane!! I just want the damn thing out of my arm. This was the biggest mistake ever!! I feel like I have no control over my body. Hell even after 3 years and I cant afford to get it out what am I supposed to do just sit with this stick in my arm for the rest of my life? I swear I am about to take it out my self! Df tried once but couldnt cut deep enough and then he freaked out. I wish I could just do it on my own. Im so irritated and depressed!!!! There has to be something I can do to get this out of my arm like NOW!!


Ok vent over bash away

No bashing. Can't you make payment arrangements with your doctors office?

Oh yuck you know I think I've been getting them bad to every so often I get extremely itchy with discharge only thing is its not lumpy like a yeast infection. I'll try calling planned parent hood tomorrow see if they will. Should I just call saying I'm having issues and no money or insurance and maybe they will?

No bashing from me. I got mine removed for the same problems PLUS constant periods i hardly ever got a break from it. I hated that thing! Had it for maybe 10 months. Had enough periods for probably 2YEARS!!!

Oh I know!! I'll skip a month and think Yay they went away just to get hit with a period for 4-6 weeks straight! I'll go through 2 boxes of tampons in that time.

I got lucky only once and went a whole month...but i had a period every week. The dr did have a hard time getting it out because of scar tissue already growing around it. :/
