So I've had my Implanon out. When I had it put in only just over a year ago I was told the hormones it produces do not effect any part of your personality or mentality.
Recently I went to the Dr and said I know that implanon is not meant to have an effect on my mental status but I really feel that it is and so does my husband.
My Dr's response was that she gets many girls every week complaining of serious changes in their personality and mental health after getting the implanon birth control and so are other Doctors. So much that studies are being conducted into what many woman are experiencing all over the world.
She offered to remove my implanon immediately, I said yes please. My personality and mental health improved noticeably within a week. I'm not back to my normal self but I feel a whole lot better and find it easier to cope and have started to enjoy my children and life again.
