    I'm currently 15, soon to be 16. I've had the implant since about the 20th of April and after about 3 weeks of having it I started to notice bad effects.

    My period was spotting and I started to get worried about my relationship ( been with him for 11 months) he is smoking weed and I was getting really worried about it. But I always use to miss him and want to see him. I blamed his lack of affection and care on the drugs. The last two weeks he been trying to be more affectionate and he's trying. However when I wasn't with him I was still worrying and getting upset about loosing him. (There is a lot going on, he's going away for a few weeks, I won't be able to see him. He's starting college etc) so the future is uncertain and honestly anyone would be worried. BUT Definetly not this worried, the implant has given me anxiety and just this week it has made me depressed. I have no interest in anything, and I'm even worried I don't want my boyfriend anymore. I'm afraid it must be the implant making me like this but I'm scared that once it's out, I will feel the same or I won't want him or something. I just don't know if it's the implant making me feel like this but even when it's out, I won't know what will happen. I'm just so scared and I'm feeling depressed and down all the time. IM DRAINED! Just want to know if anyone has had similar problems with there relationship and how they feel, when they had the implant? And will me feelings return to normal once the implants out?( sorry if none of this made sense)

    Disturbing your body's hormones is unlikely to be side-effect free (particularly over the long term). Consult your GP about this :console:
