After struggling with frequent and large annoying ovarian cysts for years now while taking oral birth control pills… my GYN recommended that I try out an insert form of birth control to see if the difference in medication helps with my ovarian cysts.
I will be getting the Nexplanon insert next week and wanted to hear feedback. I know every medication has side effects and I know that every person is different, but I have only been reading and watching youtube reviews with BAD reviews about the insert!
I am 21 years old, 114 pounds which I workout hard and love my body, and I have generally clear skin. I am hoping if I work out often, eat healthier, and drink water, then I can avoid weight gain and acne as the side effect.
If you have anything positive or negative to share, please let me know. I am aware of the mood swings too. If anyone can also recommend methods to try and avoid these side effects while having the implant, that would be great.
My daughter is 30 and she had the implant about 4 months ago. For the first two months she had terrible mood swings and would cry for no reason. She also felt sick everytime she washed herself and felt the implant under her skin.
Shes gained weight about 8 pounds and she has now got bad skin ( this on a woman who never got a teenage spot and has a very healthy diet) first she had no period and now for the last two weeks shes had a light one constantly.
Not sure how bad your need for this is but I know my adaughter is having serious regrets.
