My daughter has has it for 3 years and is getting ready to take out and replace.
Got her through high school and now will get her through college. Hope she isn't sexually active but it's like a piece of mind for me.

First 6 months spotty frequent periods
Rest of time period free

Well our Dr wanted to try her on depo first to see how her body took to it and she has been bleeding for about the last 4-5 months he keep saying once its in her system things will settle down, its time for he 3rd shot and I really don't think I want to keep putting her throuth this. She is in high school and says she's never had sex but I know it will eventually happen and just want to be safe...thanks for your input!

My stepsister had the arm one and caused infection and had to be removed but myself on the other hand had the merraina implant it worked good for awhile but it also ended up causing infection but my dr told me they really don't like doing the merraina if u havnt had child yet I did the. Depo shot before the merrina I bleed also alot ended being amebic afterwards maybe she could try the the birth control patch but I did the essure being that I'm in my late 20s married with 2kids and my husband and wanted some tine after kids are older but still awhile away being my kids are 3&5 and half glad to see some parents trying help their kids get through high school and college both before kids

I really don't know what to do my daughter is soon to be 16 says she is not sexually active and is very involved in sports she hasn't had a serious boyfriend yet and I really want to have this all figured out before she finds that so called 1st love..LOL her dad is TOTALLY against this he says all I am doing is giving her permission to have sex. Mine and her relationship is very open and I educate her on all of the STDs and so on, but I just don't know where to go from here...thanks for you input

I have the implanon for two years now without any problems. Pills don't always work and some forget to take them everyday. I've heard the shot can make you gain weight and messes with your hormones. I suggest implanon.

There will be no need for birth control if the HPV rates continue to rise. I can almost bet you if you find any 18 year old female with at least 5 unprotected sex partners, she will have one form or another of the HPV virus.

All three of my children (sons included) have had the hpv vaccines, hopefully responsible parents will get these for their children and educate them on all consequences of sex disease and pregnancy wise

Thanks for your input do you mind if I ask how old you are, and will you consider getting it again when the time comes..

I'm 24 but my cousin who is 17 also has it and neither of us have had problems. Next year I'm going to get a new one when this one runs out. I forget if even have it in my arm. I never hear anything negative about it.

could anybody recommend somewhere to go and get this in evansville? I'm in the middle of my college career and am about to get married. I am awful with the pill and would like to at least get my masters before deciding to add on to the family with anything more than a dog or two!:P

got mine at 17, now 20 and I'll be getting it out in a few months. I haven't had any issues whatsoever with it. i am and have been sexually active and haven't always used secondary protection (i know I know) but I have no complaints!!! I was on the shot before the implanon and basically had the same experience between the two but the shot definitely made me gain upwards up 30 pounds. it's also much easier than the shot, you go in once to get it put in as opposed to every three months for the shot. I am
probably going to get another implanon when I get this one out and I really do recommend it over the shot. any questions just let me know!
