I was just browsing through all the BC Experiences and I noticed there was nothing about Implanon. I'm currently shopping for a method of birth control and I was wondering if anyone had any feedback about it.

Any Implanon users out there?

Everyone's experience with any given method is different, but I do have Implanon and am happy to answer any questions about it.

If you're interested, I blogged about my experience choosing it as a method and the insertion process here: http://www.scarleteen.com/blog/karyn/2009/04/22/implanon_part_1_that_piece_of_plastic_going_in_my_arm and here: http://www.scarleteen.com/blog/karyn/2009/05/06/implanon_part_2_in_which_there_is_a_very_large_needle

Hey Hype - edited out your link because we suspected you had a picture of yourself at that address, which is a concern for your safety here as well as being against the guidelines. If you have any questions about that, let us know.
