Oh I am so glad to find people suffering with their implants!
Me and my housemate both got the implanon around june last year and we have both decided to have it out. We have both put on around a stone despite also having joined the gym at the same time and constant salad eating!
In response to anybody who says that the implanon does not make you put on weight, please bear in mind that people react to these things in different ways and I would say that it has definitely affected weight gain for us!
I too have suffered great mood swings including crying at the drop of a hat like the first poster on here. I have not heard much about people's moods being affected so I am so glad there are others out there! I have also come very close to becoming violent with people over relatively small things, this worries me because it is not in my nature at all!
On top of this I started off bleeding for two weeks every three weeks, now it has become worse with heavy bleeding, cramps which are so extreme I have been sick and felt faint and now I am pretty much on my period all the time apart from three days off every two weeks.
If the implant doesn't affect your mood much I dread to think what I'd be like on the pill!
I have discussed adding the pill into it but this is mainly aimed at controlling the bleeding so I think if anything I will go for the coil, as I feel anything hormone related changes my whole personality!
I can't believe I haven't had it taken out sooner to be honest, it's affected my life in a very negative way.
