If you're fine with a mini-pill, it's very likely that you'll be fine with the implant: both only use progesterone.
The implant is staggeringly effective, more so than having a sterilisation op. Whether or not you think that's worth having it always under your skin is something only you can decide.

I'm a VERY good pill taker. I remember a lot but I was wondering about other people's experiences of which is better. I take the Cerelle MINI PILL but was possibly thinking about changing to the implant. Opinions please?
I've heard people can gain weight on the implant, get acne and even have heavy bleeding from miscarriages, however, I've heard its more effective?
What is true from your experiences?
I'd like to know about:
. Weight gain
. Any other problems
I've had it for three years (need to get it changed actually), and it's a godsend. It's painful having it done, but then you don't need to worry about anything for three years. As a bonus, my periods disappeared!
