i had one put in after dc4..it lasted 3 days and i demanded they take it out, it really freaked me out because you could see/feel it under the skin..and it kept stabbing me too, it was agony and i couldnt stick it
I knew someone who had it - she had it for about 2 years but then her circumstances changed and she wanted it out so that she could start a family.
She had no problems with it.
I'm concidering it myself. (Have tried pretty much everything else!)
Have a Mirena at the mo' which I've had for 18 months with no problems at all until this month. I have had all symptoms of pregnancy (blood test has confirmed not) and hormones all over the place for no reason?! Can't handle this every month!
hi, i have an implanon and i LOVE it. It regulated my absoloutely nightmare periods and i have had no weight/depression problems, in fact i have lost weight and come off anti depressants since having it!
I you have it implanted by someone who REALLY knows what they are doing, (there are some gps who can do a real hack job of it!) then it is painless, leaves to scar, and u can just feel it under your skin, which means in three years time it is easy to remove/replace.
I would not hesitate to recommend it, however everyone reacts differently to different hormones. I was on a pill with a very similar hormone mix for two years before getting the implanon, so was pretty confident about getting it.
