Hi,
Im 15 and to make sure i don't have to with possible underage pregnancy again, im having the iplant.
Im not very good with injections but im getting better, will this really hurt?
I know you are probably thinking if i hate injection, why am i getting a implant? The thing is i can't swallow.
How long is it sore for? any info i should know about it? is it suitable for my age? :/

Given your age, the one thing to know with any projestin-only method is that you'll just want to find some way of taking a calcium supplement, because those can impact bone density, and at your age, it's VERY important you finish developing in that way.

before I say anything else, you know your only options are not just the pill and the implant, yes? This could be a fine method for you, but there are also others were you don't have to swallow pills.
