    I bled for a month at a time when I first got mine but then after 6 months my periods stopped altogether Thinking of carrying on with implants even though I have no need, just so I don't have to have periods again

    Hello.. I'm a little younger than majority of you, I'm actually 14. I had the Nexplanon implanted into my arm on 26/06/2015 which was 3 days ago. I know it's a little early to be experiencing any side affects, but so far I seemed to look a lot slimmer. And also the day I want to get the implant, was the day my period started... I had pains until I got the implant done, and since then I haven't had a single period pain.. And I have dysmenorrhea(agonising periods) and I also have heavy periods.. But since having the implant I went light, and now my period has stopped and I only have spotting. And another thing is since getting the implant I've been a lot happier, and bouncy. Yes I've had the odd faint feeling and headache, but nothing major. And I'm a teen so of course I'm going to have spots. But I only seem to have one. So my review so far on Nexplanon is a 7/10, I don't like the cold trickling feeling it gives me.

    I had my nexplanon implant just about a year and a half until I decided to finally take it out because it was a massive pain in the backside. I've never been prone to getting pimples but suddenly I kept getting huge pimples all the time, gained weight and bled irregularly and was just miserable. Sometimes my period would be regular but then I'd go six or eight weeks without any bleeding and then I'd bleed for absolute ages. Sometimes it'd stop two or three days and then it'd start over again.

    I finally took my implant out two weeks ago and to my dismay I'm STIL bleeding even though it's slowing down. I was on the pill (progestogen only) so I'm assuming it's the hormones taking some time to get out of my system but it's very frustrating. Hopefully it'll slow down and go back to normally.

    Wouldn't recommend implant at all. I'm 17 so hormones are already all over the shop. However, I'm usually bright and cheerful, my relationship with my boyfriend is usually amazing and we get along very well in all ways... Now I'm insane, I feel depressed, headachey and nauseous the majority of the time. I'm an emotional wreck and it's destroying my relationship within the boyfriend and my family; I'm miserable. The bleeding is a pain but not too bad because I'm still able to have sex quite regularly though my drive isn't as much as it was when I first started having sex. Getting it removed asap as I can't cope with the emotional mood swings and self loathing. Effective and gives you piece of mind but depression is not something I'm willing to endure.
