I learned to live with it because I forgot it was there. The side effects were intense the first couple month then I got used to it and stopped realizing how bad it was. The headaches come and go but are significant, I always thought it was my MS causing it until it didn’t come with relapses. I’m pretty much always bleeding or spotting, I gained 10 Pounds and it’s been very hard to control cravings. My emotions are everywhere or I have none. My sex drive which is normally very healthy is gone… And I get utis super frequently since I’ve been on it. My period was always 4 days before, currently it’s 5 days of heavy bleeding followed by weeks of light spotting. I hate it, I gave it a full year try, I’m having it taken out tomorrow.

Love this! I decided to leave a review because when I was looking into getting it all of the reviews were bad. You have to realize that if you don’t like something, you tell 9 people, if you do you tell one. Most people who like the implant simply never leave a review because they kind of forget it is in their lives. That’s how easy it is. I’ve had it for 4 months. I feel the exact same. My period STOPed! My boobs are a bit bigger and sore but i don’t really mind that. If anything i maybe gained one or two pounds:) Insertion was not bad at all. Try it out and you can always take it out after! But for me, I love it so far!

I decided to give the implant a try after having my 3rd child. Almost immediately after I got it I noticed my body changing. My mood swings were so unpredictable! One minute I was normal then the next I'm screaming and reading over something so miniscule. I hoped it would stabilize or get better over time, but it hasn't. My periods are extremely long and seem to overlap. They're not always heavy though, so that's a good thing, but I can "spot" or bleed lightly for WEEKS! I've went to my OB about this and explained to her my concerns. She heard my concerns and advised I take birth control pills to help stabilize my hormones and help stop the bleeding. My implants expiration date is QuickTime approaching in March and I couldn't be more excited! I may even have it removed early. It's giving me soooo many problems since I got it put in my arm. I'll never have the implant again.
