Hello All
I am thinking about changing my contraception, as I am rubbish at taking my pill now for some reason, NOT good! :lol:
Ive had the depo before and it caused me no end of probs when I came off, so I was thinking about the implant. Do any of you use this? Any advice much appreciated. Thanks :D

Hi Natalie
Thanks - how long does it last, are they all different, and can you have it out at any time? x

it lasts 3 years but you can have it out whenever you want! the best thing is when you get it out your body goes back to normal basically straight away, unlike the pill etc when your body needs time to get back into a system!

The implanon implant works in the same way as the depo does as it is progestrone only. The advantages of it are that, unlike the depo, it doesn't thin your bones, and it loses it's effect immediately after it is removed (small surgical procedure). Therefore, you don't have to wait for the level of progestrone to level out like you do with the depo, so it makes ttc (should you choose to later) a lot easier as it takes much less time for your body to get back to normal! :D
