I had my implanon put in over 2.5yrs ago now its due to come out this September being 3yrs that I've had it in. At first I wasn't sure on it as heard so many bad stories about it, but thought I'd give it a go as didn't have many other contraception options. Anyway I had it put in 3 weeks after I had my last baby, I had a few spot bleeds at first but then it settled down, but then when I gave up breastfeeding just 5mths later I had bleeding for 3 weeks straight and very heavy and I went to see my dr as I wanted it out but she told me to just see how I go as my hormones would be all over the place giving up b/feeding anyway, so I waited and yeah it did settle down in that next week it all stopped and then I never had this problem again, I never get a period, all I get is every 6mths I have a small spot bleed, I often feel like AF is coming but it doesn't and its been really great. I'm sort of dreading now about having it out and how a 2nd one put in will go and whether it will be the same. But I think its worth just sitting it out a bit as it just might work for you too, I think its been great but I know its not for everyone.
