I've had "Implonon" for 3 years!! Periods here, periods there. Long... Short... NO other side effects!!! Actually it made my period symptoms BETTER!!!! Until my last month of the 3 yrs.
Now I'm getting it removed and "Nexplonon" put in-same day process!!!
But I cannot remember what the beginning was like and ALLLLLLL I keep reading is EVERYONE (exaggeration) has had non-stop periods.... Ugh!!!! I've gone 3 months with a period with maybe 5 days off of it. I know the differences- incertion and the die that shows it in xray/ct/MRI. But I don't like I'm not seeing GOOD period results... Hense why I have it in the first place- I'm already unconsistant (non birth control) so it didn't bother me plus I was more off than on with "Implonon".
I'm probably gonna go with it anyways cuz it's all covered but anyone go full term Implonon to full or 2years Nexplonon???

You know, we have sound studies done on methods that tell us, in reliable ways, the incidence of side effects. Personal anecdotes are not as sound or helpful, because they are not controlled studies, and will also never be something yiu can bet reliably from thousands of users, which is what those studies give us.

Nonstop flow, versus occasional spotting, is NOT something everyone has. In fact, that is deeply rare, and something almost no one will experience. And since you have been using a nearly identical method, you can feel pretty sure your experience with that one will probably be a lot like your experience with this new one.

Rather than reading what sounds like pretty unreliable stuff, why don't you ask your provider to simply talk with you about the documented rates of side effects with Nexplanon (that is the correct spelling, btw, so you want to be sure to research it using that, and if you have not been, that likely explains part of you finding so much misinformation about it, probably on top of reading about it on sites where information is not moderated or fact-checked) look up their patient information online?

Thank you!!!
That's what I've been doing, it's hard to find open websites with all symptoms and bleeding effects!!
I LOVE ❤️ my Implonon!!!! Minus bleeding for weeks/ months then not for weeks/months. Kinda effects my relationship 😒
But never a scare and the insertion was painless and healing great!!! Like I said I need it out this month and have an apt set. But the past month + have been a world of disaster PMS wise/symptoms. And I know everyone is different. I guess the whole idea of it having a dye in it and knowing the implant releases into my body scares me the dye will too. Lol I know it won't though.
I'd just like the reinforcement on knowing there's more pisdirive word of mouth!!!
New us better right?! Lol

Well, new is not always better, but it also does not mean something is a problem because it is new.

It really sounds to me like you could just benefit from one more chat with your healthcare provider about this where you voice these concerns and have a conversation about them.

Too, if spotting or other vaginal bleeding is having a poor impact on your relationship, that is something you and your partner can talk about, as it does not have to be an issue or a problem. After all, those are normal body fluids, just like your partner has fluids.
