I have had the jadelle simce november last year, i find it convientent but i hate that i can feel it and its sometimes really painful. Randomly i will get sharp pains when my jadelle is kind of like a stabbing pain. I also seem to have an irregular cylce some months ill have to deal with 2 periods amd others none. But for the most part i find the jadelle is good i dont have to remember to take a pill so i never cam forget it. Im so scared for the removal in 3 years , sounds amd looks painfull.

Hey, I've had the Jadelle since Feb 2011. I had 1 small light period after it was inserted and then nothing for months. Thought it was awesome as. I lost all my extra weight from Depo Provera and dont have weight issues anymore. However the last 5 months have been so weird. Started bleeding 6/7 days and it is heavey for 1-2 of those days other than that wouldnt even fill a tampon or pad (annoying). Now it has been 18 days and no period but my boobs are painful/tender? I have also noticed recently that I'm easily annoyed and fustrated which isnt normally me. I'm thinking of removing it as I'm finding these inconsitent side effects worrying. I cant understand how i am getting these side effects now after a long time of no side effects?

I was wishing to use jadelle but am no longer sure now. My periods are light and they last only four days, the thought of heavy bleeding for six days scares me.

I have had the jadelle for 4 months now and its kind of scaring because i have put on so much weight like 10 kgs and still counting and also heavy bleeding in some months lets say going up to 3 weeks. Who can suggest a better drug i dont want to be obese or excessive bleeding.

Hi i have had the jadelle for around 4 months now and i have a major pimple problem. They vary from my head to my chest and upper back. Im just wondering if these are temporary as your body gets used to the implants or if they only get worse because that is what appears to be happening. If any one has these side effects please help! im trying to figure out if i should persist with the jadelle or get them removed :/

jeez did they even test these things,or are we guinea pigs at the mo?i got them 2 days ago.they said weight gain is possible...no is expected coz of the hormone that's in them..looks like them doctors are also in the dark about them.

I have had it for 3 years now, and as convenient it is I can not control my moodiness, I get swallolon bloated and have had hair grow on my face that grows back I have never had before, I am getting it removed as is not worth being depressed on week every month.
