I've been researching a bit about birth control, trying to decide which method I'd like to use, and not been finding anything I'd like. But recently, my friend got Implanon, which is a bar thing they put in your arm, and it stays for three years. Noone has gotten/reprted getting pregnant while on it, and it has very little chance of weight gain (i'm a recovering EDNOS, so that's important.) I've made an appointment to talk about it with a doctor who specializes in it, but I wasnt sure if anyone on here had it, and wanted to share thier experience?http://www.implanon-usa.com/Thats the website incase anyone is interested.
I'd be really nervous about having something in my arm. What if for whatever reason you needed it removed right away? Or you have a bad reaction with it after they put it in. What's wrong with taking the pill?
The removal is almost as simple as putting it in, which takes about 10 minutes. So I'm not too worried about that.
