Anyway, doc sent me on my way with a stitch, which I am having out later today. I can honestly say, I feel SO SO much better already!! I am up off the sofa wanting to do things, I am happy, positive and alert and I understand these things could be all in my head but I DONT CARE!!! I do feel great! I can see that this must have affected my overall life. When the doc (private - I paid to have it removed) asked me why I was having it out I said, weight gain, bowel problems etc etc and he just agreed with me. Not weighed myself yet but will let you know if I lose and also if I get into 'sexy' mood again lol xxx

i'm 38 and had my implanon out 3 weeks ago. Although i had the bliss of no periods for over 2 years, i gained 15 pounds (10 of which i lost within 3 days of implanon being removed!).
For 2 years i experienced waves of nausea, sore breasts ( i thought i was pregnant several times), lethargy, declining sex drive, extreme depression and general feelings of being unwell. I also experienced the yeast infections that another lady spoke about and feeling constantly hungry.
I feel so much better now it is out. Just wondering how long before i get my first period and how long before i start ovulating properly as my husband and i are trying for a baby. The websites say you are fertile as soon as the implant is removed but some ladies on these forums say they still are not ovulating or having periods 2 years after their implants were removed!
