I considered this one but think I'm going to go with the mirena.
Did it hurt when you got it done?

From some of the pictures, I would never get it! I see girls pinching it and that's too much for me.. Yikes..

I have the implanon(same thing. Different name). It's normal to bruise. Just warning: your periods will be wacky and you will feel pregnant more than you won't. Well in my case anyway. I've had it a year and I'm just now feeling normal

Fertility Awareness Method.  No hormones.  Can be used for TTA or TTC.

Yeah mine was bad also. I had gotten a noraplant. Five rods, five years. I used an ice pack to help the swelling.

Well I guess if they stick something in your arm you have to expect bruising.

My Implanon didn't bruise that badly. Then again, it's been almost a year and a half and my memory is a bit fuzzy.
