Review by Lauren S (taken for 6 months to 1 year):

For Birth Control: I've had my Nexplanon since July of 2014 and I love it. I did not get the month long periods that others got but I have been on birth control pills for a while so my body just may be used to birth control in general. My periods come maybe 2 or 3 times a year and usually last a week and a half, which is the only downside. My boyfriend and I do not use any other form of birth control and so far so good.

For Birth Control: I got my Nexplanon in March of 2014. So I've had it a year now, and I bled for about 3 weeks but it was light, and I have an actual period sometimes. I like it, for the most Part. Mine still hurts and tingles sometimes, but its all good.

For Birth Control: I had it inserted in Nov 2014 I've a period heavy and little everyday it's very stressful and expensive to be buying pads. Also, I refuse to have set with my husband knowing that I'm bleeding. VERY DISAPPOINTED. I like implanon better at least my periods came every 2-3 months I can deal with that. Will be calling my doctor tomorrow

For Birth Control: Been on Nexplanon for 3 years now and I can say it's the best birth control there is out there. I dont have to worry about taking pills or using a back up at all. I'm definitely be going back to get my second one. I only get headaches and I haven't had a period but other then that it's all good.

For Birth Control: I got my Nexplanon 11/21/14 and my nonstop bleeding started January and haven't stopped since. First it was heavy for one week then light then heavy for two week now its just spotting and I think its about to go off but I can never be sure...just ready for it to go off because I'm tired of buying pads.

For Birth Control: I'm on my third one and I've gotta tell you I like it. My doctor prescribed a med. to stop heavy periods or very long periods, I take a pill and they stop. It has not affected my sex drive and everything else is going good.

For Birth Control: It's going on a year I've been on it. My boyfriend and I had sex a week or so later and was fine. My first few months I was on a constant period. Not really heavy, but enough to aggravate anyone. I was extremely sensitive, and now I'm having terrible terrible acne. (sigh)

For Birth Control: I have had Nexplanon since January 9th and so its been a little over 2 months since I've gotten it inserted. I was nervous about getting it inserted but the whole process is a breeze, so if you are considering it don't worry about that! For 2 months, I bled almost every day but it wasn't bad. As time went on, it was less and less. I've read other reviews where they said they bleed everyday and was horrified about that happening to me, but it was hardly noticeable. Sex wise- I haven't gotten pregnant and this is the only form of protection my boyfriend and I use. Also, I didn't get any acne but for the first month, I would get nauseous easily after doing cardio or even after having 1 alcoholic beverage. But that has gotten a lot better.

For Birth Control: I have been on Nexplanon for a yr. I have not had a period during that time. I occasionally get cramps but that's it. overall it was a miracle for me. I used to suffer from ovarian cysts and heavy periods. It also supported my road warrior lifestyle which was difficult with the pill.

For Birth Control: I got my birth control in July 2014. For the First 6 Months My Periods Would Last 10 Days which was ok for me. Into my 7th month my period came on Feb 3rd an its been light but its still on...... and that's been about 20 days. This is irritating im really considering getting it taken out. I'm On My 2Nd Box Of Tampons and liners. This isnt good for me.

For Birth Control: I've been on this birth control for about 6 months and I love it! Its helping me balance my weight, I lost 10 pounds on it! I have constant spotting with it but its not heavy and it doesn't leave anything on my underwear at all so that's pretty cool. 10/10 recommend.

For Birth Control: After I had my baby in September, I decided to get Nexplanon. I got it implanted in November and had normal periods for about two months and then they stopped altogether!

For Birth Control: I've had Nexplanon since 11/5/14 and the whole first week I had extreme nausea, then bled for 3 weeks, was okay for about a month and now I'm back to nonstop bleeding, extreme nausea, very anxious, crying all the time, acne, and I'm just overall very unhappy and no longer myself. Having it removed next Monday but I'm not sure I can wait.

For Birth Control: Everything is great. I've had it for about two and a half months, no bad side effects. I've gained like four pounds, but it's not the end of the world. I've also had lots of spotting, which is expected and that should stop since I haven't had Nexplanon for very long. Besides those two things, nothing bad and I love it.

For Birth Control: This is THE best birth control. Ever since I got it I haven't had one scare nor have I needed to be worried. At first it did really screw with my periods and acne and emotions and I almost had it removed but my doctor said I should keep it for at least a year so my body would have enough time to adjust. Well, it's been about a year and I am so happy. I no longer bleed when I have my periods. I do still have the emotions and extra breakouts but other than that nothing! The only thing that hasn't gone away is my acne, it's actually gotten a little bit worse. I love it anyways and would suggest it to everyone and anyone.

For Birth Control: I have been on Nexplanon for a while. During the beginning, I had my period on my normal time of the month. After my first year, I had begun barely having a period. I don't know if it's diet or something, but I'm on my second year and I have begun having my period for a month at a time, but three months without one. Overall, I'm not pregnant, and it hasn't effected my mood, craving, acne, anything.

Review by Notforthismom:

For Birth Control: First, I've spotted on and off with this birth control. Over a year of it. Second, I can't lose weight for anything. After diets, exercise, you name it I can't lose weight. I've been the same weight maybe a few lbs more for a year. Third, I have no desire to be touched or even want to have sex. My sex drive doesn't exist. This all started when I got on this. I'm getting it removed this month. No other birth control has ever done this to me. It's not for me personally.

For Birth Control: Best birth control ever I've use it for since Jan 2013 and I've not gain weight, no headaches or nothing different from my normal life except that I haven't had a period ever since I got it which my Gyno said it was normal when I first got it didn't hurt a bit and I went on a cruise a week after that's how quick it heal but I guess everyone is different. Most people I know that has it love it and that's why I chose to get that one. Good luck to everyone.

For Birth Control: I had it inserted on September 5 2013. No problems, I had a period the following month for about 11 days and then after that I didn't have another until August 2014, it lasted almost 2 weeks but was really light. I have occasional spotting and cramping but the usually only lasts a day. Other than that I've had no complaints except for about 30 pounds of weight gain.

For Birth Control: I have had this birth control since July of 2014, so I've had it for about 7 months now and I recommend it to everyone! I only spotted for a couple days after getting it and then my period had stopped all together. I had no problems since then and I even lost 5 pounds! 100% effective for preventing pregnancies also. I love it!

For Birth Control: I think this is pretty great but the constant spotting can get in the way of a lot of things and can get really obnoxious and a little weight gain but other than that I think it's cool

For Birth Control: I've had Nexplanon since June 2013 and its been great except for the first 7 months, I had an almost non stop period but since then no period been almost a year and half no period pretty happy about that. No weight gain actually lost weight. At first it did affect my mood but after awhile I got back to myself. Little to no acne. I plan on getting a new one when I get this one taken out. Best birth control!

For Birth Control: It's very effective against pregnancy but the side effects have been horrible for me. I got it installed in June 2014 after having my baby. In August I noticed 2 patch's of my hair gone and severely thinned out in the front of my hair. I just thought this was due to postpartum hair loss which typically happens 3-4 months after you have a baby. However it is now January 27th 2015 and the hair loss has continued and now has spread to my entire front head around the edges. Also since I have had it, I have had no desire for sex. Nothing gets me aroused at all. My sex drive is nonexistent. I am going to get it removed soon because the side effects are unbearable. I am most upset by my hair loss.

For Birth Control: I have been on the Nexplanon for a year and two months now. Last time I got my period was on June for 6 days. No pregnancies. I did spot for a couple of days when I first got it inserted but other than that no complaints. I don't get spotting, more periods I guess I am those lucky ones. I recommend this!
