I was wondering if anybody has had problems with the birth control "implanon" ive had mine for 2 1/2 years so far. I have multiple "issues" and it would be helpful to hear what others have/had with this birth control. Im due to have it out in december of this year, is there anyone whos had it in a second time and had issues??

I'm glad my hubby got a vastectomy Chantelle. No more artificial hormones for me :-)

He said it was the least he could do since I carried and gave birth to 3 children.

first time i had it i got ovarian cysts after 12 months and had 3 weeks od bleeding and one week off, the 2nd time i had it for 6 months and the constant bleeding, and also sore lumpy breasts (which frankly freaked me out) though now i am on the depo and have not stopped having my period at all since 7th dec...just can't win, so i've had my kids and my hubby is getting a vasectomy next month

I had it a few years ago and got it taken out after 6 months because I didn't stop bleeding. It got very draining (not to mention expensive) bleeding for 6 months.

I would never get it again.

I had one for 12 months, by then I was ready to cut it out of my arm myself.

I was moody, retained fluid, had swelling and probably more that I can't remember (it was quite a few years ago).

I hated the damn thing. That and the injection you can get are the same drug apparently, so if you have this removed don't go down the injection route, and I personally wouldn't get a Marina either.
