So glad to read this! I am 23, had a fairly healthy life style, did not exercise massively, but was very active through out the day in my job and I don't eat huge amounts etc.

I have been on the implant for 2 years. I met my bf 6 months before having the implant. Not an emotional person, no joint pain, no tiredness, good sex drive.

2 years on, I have now been diagnosed with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. Can't bend down to put my shoes on, can't get out the car without supporting myself, feet ache in the morning and feel completely broken at the end of the day. I have no sex drive at all. If I didn't have a busy job, I would sleep all day. Any exercise at all or even the thought of it, is impossible, because of joint pain. I started to slowly gain weight, but I hadn't changed my diet. I am 5'2 and now I weigh 10 stone 2. I cry at anything, kittens, losing something, being happy, anything. I am gutted and mortified that I allowed the implant into my life. My bf has only known me as this lazy emotional achey mess that he can't have sex with.

I am having it out today and can't wait to see the benefits, and for my bf to get to know the happy, bouncy positive person I once was. I would never recommend this to anyone ever. It's put my life on hold, and feel like I have lost 2 years of my life.

I'm so glad I found this site. I'm 41 and I'm on my 2nd implant in my second year. Since abt 6 months ago I've been getting hot flushes..mood swings and really bad achy joints. My family has a history of early menopause so I'm wondering if it's this?? I haven't had a period for 3 1/2 years so I don't know. I've put weight on also. The hot flushes are awful..especially when I'm out and start sweating profusely. It's horrible. My gp is not very understanding. What do I do? Help!!

I have had the implant for 3 months now and although it's not enough time to know when the side affects stop however I feel as though the implant is much better than anything else I've taken ive tried four different pills all of which gave me nausea headaches and tiredness plus I would alway forget to take it most days. First period I had on the implant lasted for a week and a half then it was fine until January when I wasn't bleeding for the whole month but recently my nipples are so painful! Thought it was down to my bras but it turns out to Ben a side affect of the implant other than the nipples hurting I'm fine with everything else but constantly worrying about being pregnant. I know I'm not as I'm always careful but have taken a test once and it's been clear. Just hope the nipples stop hurting! I think the implant is a much better solution then most however there is a lot more side affects than taking the pill

I got the implant about 2 weeks ago and my period started yesterday and today I've been passing clots...the last couple were pretty long and kind of thick(sorry). My doctor also said I had a clot in my uterus about a week after. I'm pretty freaked.

Im honestly so glad i have found this site and have seen im not the only one who has been feeling this way. I got the implant at the start of Feb. this year and ever since I have expeienced major mood swings. Weight gain and acne etc. has ony been minimal but my emotions have been all over the place and tings were never so bad until i got the implant. I cry over nothing and small things that would never normally bother me make me feel the worst, i wouldnt recommend the implant to anyone as its pretty much ended my current relationship because of how snappy and angry ive become. From tuesday (when its getting removed) I hope so much allive been feeling for the past 4 months will go because I'm so sick of not being myself. DONT GET THE IMPLANT!!
