 I'm considering it for post-partum. I really only have 3 options (besides abstinence and condoms) since I'll be breastfeeding: the mini-pill (which I'm horrible at taking), Depo (which I had a horrible experience with) and this.

Any info or experience would be helpful!

I got my period 18 mos postpartum. With implanon, I bled heavily for 10 days, stopped for 6, bled for 10 more, stopped for 3, started bleeding again and had them take it out.

I also had problems with excessive bleeding with depo.

Progestin only birth controls do not work for me, and I can't take ones with estrogen because of nursing.

I suggest looking into a female barrier or using condoms. You can get both at Walmart and both are very effective.

After having so Manu issues with hormones from bc, I am never using bc again. :/

Here's a bump.  I got nothing for you, lol...Implanon weirds me out.  So do IUDs.  Gives me the eeby-jeebies.
