nexplanon

had nexplanon put in monday...so far not bad. only objection is the bruising it gave me and increased appetite. just curious though if anyone else has tried the implant methods?

I'm getting Implanon next week. Not excited about the side effects (mood swings, weight gain, acne.. etc.) but I can't remember to take a pill and I don't want to mess up my BFing with estrogen birth control.

so far so good. only pp complaint is insomnia which i went and got something for today. the doc wanted to take it out but i told her no. i am fine with it just working midnights, afternoons and mornings was my issue. thinking of asking to work one specific availibilty if not find another job....my family is #1 and feel far less devoted to there since i came back. well see where the whole availibilty convo goes, worse case scenario i have an interview already lined up on monday.

I've been reading reviews about Implanon and they're mostly good, the women that are unhappy seem a bit nutty. I mean if it's as bad as they say why not have it removed? I'll have it taken out before I bleed for 3 months straight or gain 25 pounds.

ikr...was my exact logic too. my bruising has almsot completely gone away. other than feeling the rod for it, its virtually unoticeable and functions just as good as before i had it put it. watch out with imlpanon though you can get pg again quick once you come off it.

Well doc told me it'll last for three years and that's when we've decided to start trying again, if not a little sooner. so works for me. Wink
