Implanon birth control

seaofneptune seaofneptune
I have been thinking about getting the Implanon. I currently have been taking the pill but I will be out of insurance come July and so I won't be able to afford to pay for it regularly anymore. I was thinking about getting the Implanon because then I will no longer have to worry about getting the pills regularly anymore. I have been researching it and looking into the possible side effects that I may have to see if it's worth it or not. I know it only lasts for 3 years and from what I read it's reversible by removal. I do feel that I want children in the future but I just can't afford to have them right now.

I wanted to know if any of you have it and how it works for you. Also, if not the Implanon then what other options do I have? I am a college student and I work a part-time job so without insurance it will be hard for me to pay a large sum for anything.

Thanks!

I currently have the Implanon and it is due for removal in August. Starting in December I started to have more than usual irregular periods. About three weeks ago I found out that i had a miscarriage and didn't even know or think I was pregnant.Up until then I thought it was wonderful, but after my incident I started to do some in depth research and found I was the only one this happened to. Of course I understand that all birth control is not 100%, but I have also had the Mirena and was on depo for 5 years without any problems. Have you looking into the Mirena? It is also 3 years, I believe, but it is an IUD versus and implant in your arm.

I don't recommend it! I had it put in last summer and immediately had it removed about 2 months later. There can be a long adjustment period to it or .....you will spot non-stop like I did. I kept having periods every couple of weeks with it with spotting in between and didn't want to deal with it. At my age (40), I was able to opt for something more permanent (uterine ablation and tubal ligation). I haven't had a period since September 2010 and probably never will again.

I just used regular tri-cyclic birth control in my 20's, which worked great. Sure, I had to take a pill everyday, but all was regular and my skin was beautiful!

That info is great for me as well as I was considering this as an option for myself for protection. I will be looking for something else I think. Thanks Girls

I've seriously thought about it. mainly because it doesn't have estrogen, as I cannot handle it....But at this point I think I'll stick with my pills, and just get my tubes tied after the next PG..

I guess I could try looking into the Mirena and see if it will work for me as well - Thanks!

I was looking into it too but I'm not a fan of something I have to be cut to use. I want Mirena but my gyno doesn't like to put them in women who haven't had kids and I have not. Good luck with your options. (Why are there no bc options for men besides condoms )

I would totally consider this and probably decide on it, if I had the money to drop on it all at once. I will have to look into it closer, but in the long run it's way cheaper. It's just paying so much at one time. It seems easy enough to remove if there are any issues.
