Weight gain with Contraceptive Implant

I have been on the implant about 18 months and my weight has steadily increased ever since despite diet and exercise. Has anyone experienced this and had the implant taken out followed by weight loss? I’m trying to decide what to do for the best. TIA Leanne x

I gained weight rapidly on this, hated it. I think about two stone in as many months!

I begged the doctors to remove it and felt instantly better, started loosing weight, and then fell pregnant again 🤦🏼‍♀️

Im looking into the copper coil now as I don't want to put any hormones into my body

Exactly the answer I was hoping for (apart from the getting pregnant again bit 😂), I have an appointment to have mine taken out but I wanted to check if the weight would come back off as I don’t want my periods back if there isn’t another incentive lol. Thanks for the reply xx
