Experience

Gained a ton of weight using nexplanon implant despite limiting my diet to 1100 calories a day, jogging 5k every day and lifting weights regularly. Even when I used a personal trainer I couldn’t lose weight. Then lost 7lbs in as many days after the implant was removed. Also negatively affected my mood and caused big mood swings. Have lost 3 dress sizes (and still losing weight steadily) in the year or so since removal and noticed an almost immediate improvement in my mood after having it removed.
