Experience

I have had the nexplanon implant for 14 months and I have regular periods once a month but occasional spotting in between. I have also had cramps, anemia, weight gain, breast size increase and tenderness. However, it has successfully protected me from pregnancy and been a reliable contraception. The symptoms are just tiresome.
