Spotting everyday for 6 months would suck.

I've got it and personally i don't care for it.  It's not unbearable but some things are uncomfortable.   I have irregular periods.  Some have lasted between 7 days to 8 weeks (yes, daily i would spot. There were 3 whole days total that i was not bleeding on some level.)  On the other hand i can go 3 months without having a period.  It made me gain 20ish pounds.   I personally have always gained weight on bc though.  I think that I will be changing my form of bc in the future.  I think I will go with the depo shot.  I've been on that before and liked it a lot better.  Good luck though.  From what i understand it effects each person different.  some have absolutely no probs what so ever.

Oh god... you like the depo shot more than implanon?  I just came off Depo and was considering Implanon... now I don't know...

 i've had it since February. so far no side effects, but my Dr. did tell me that women tend to go one of two ways either they bleed alot (which she said she could prescribe something to stop) or you don't bleed at all and so far i havn't bled. she said it does make a difference as to your weight or if you've gotten your period back after having a baby. the Implanon had the least negative feedback that i could find while i was doing my research so it was the choice i went with.
