Contraception

(1 Post)

So I've had the nexplanon implant for almost 3 years, I've been a hormonal mess, very emotional, paranoid, anxiety and weight gain to name just a few side affects.
I've booked to have it taken out the end of this month, we would like to TTC next summer.
Would I be silly to not have another form of contraception in use?
I have a husband that works away 90% of the time and we have very little sex.
I'd like to give my body a break, it's been pumped with hormones since I was 15 and feel using condoms for the 1 or 2 times a month we actually have sex is fine. But is this irresponsible ? (I'd be perfectly fine with Falling pregnant a little earlier if that did happen anyway)
Has anyone had the implant removed ? How long does it take for your body to return to normal? I've had no period for 3 years now.
Also no idea if this is the correct place to post, couldn't find a contraception board to post on.
Thanks in advance.
