Experience

I had nexplanon from the age 18 to 23 with one replacement. Initially I was very happy with implanon the major benefit being no periods and the convenience. When I got my second implant inserted I started to gain some weight and in general became a more anxious person. However this was not extreme in 5 years I gained 4kg.

Experience after taking

After getting implanon removed I feel less anxious and I am hoping I loose some weight. However I only removed it a week ago so its too soon to notice any big changes yet
