I had Implanon fitted for 18 months and have lost 5 Stone in weight during that time by following 'Slimming World' eating plan.
I honestly don't believe the Implanon causes weight gain or prevents you from losing weight - Its simply a case of eating more calories than you burn off!.
I think some people find it easier to blame Implanon than accept that it's their eating/lifestyle habits that are the real problem.
Every person body is different, just because your one of the lucky ones doesn't mean that every one is the same! I was fine on the implanon for the first 16 months, although i gained about 12 kilos, now im getting major pain in my abdomen and even more weight gain.
the implanon has caused me to get constant ovarian cysts, and i have never been more exhausted!
My doctor doesn't know why the sudden change but i am on an antiinflamatory 24/7!
Am thinking of getting it removed very soon, though i cannot take the combined pill as i get migranes and it makes me very ill, does anyone know what else i could go on?
