Implanon?

Today was my post-partum appointment. All was good, however, the BC talk came up. I asked about the Implanon and they are going to order it for me. Anyone have any advice on this method. There's no estrogen, so its BF friendly, since I am still kind of BFing. Anyone have it, or considered it?

Re: Implanon?

  • I had it for three years before conceiving DS. After 2 months on it I had no period which was awesome. The only side effect I noticed was a slight decrease in sex drive but not enough to really make a difference. Insertion and removal were both painless and I cant even find the tiny scar anymore. I got pregnant 3 weeks after removal hahaha. I plan on getting it again but Im having problems with insurance this time around. I highly recommend it!

  • Thank you for your input. Some friends of mine are warning me against it, but they loved the mirena IUD and I had it after DS1 and I reallyu didn't like it. As long as my insurance covers it, I think I will go through with it.

    Just out of curiosity, what are their reasons against it?

  • Two girls I have spoken with have been adamant they knew someone who became pregnant while on it. That was the main reason. The girl that I know who actually HAS it, has had no problems with it. Every bc method besides obviously not having sex, or having a hysterectomy, has a .01% chance of not stopping it. I just wanted to know about side effects because everything I have tried has had horrible side effects.
