I'm wanting to get that and I go to the doctor on the 4th. Did you like it? Did it hurt? How did it effect you? Pro and cons? Would you recommend it? Any other info would be greatly appreciated!

I had implanon. Didn't hurt to put in. I had an adverse reaction (as I did with 2 others previously) and had to have it taken out. If you do not have trouble with birth controls I would recommend it. If you do then I would not.

Implanon didn't hurt to get inserted or removed, but I could see it and feel it from the outside. 
The hormones did not agree with me AT ALL and I bled heavily for most of the 3 months I had it in.

Don't get it. It is the worse bc out. I bled for 6 weeks then not bleed for2 week and then again for 6 weeks. That went on for a year before I finally had it removed.

Me.  My advice: don't.  I have a nasty scar from it because my muscles grew around it.  The patch was the my second choice after that and I loved it.

 I had the Norplant in my arm...this was 20 years ago...it wasn't too bad...I liked that fact that I could "forget" about it...the arm was sore for a bit after the procedure but not too bad...the only thing I didn't like was that it made me gain weight.
