... and a half and I have been putting up with dramatic weight gain and depression since! I've gained a stone and a half, and when I finally saw the light to lose some weight I've found it virtually impossible to lose it, and I've tried with good diet and exercise so it should work (my doctor says it could be because the hormone is being always put into my system, which is making my weight gain) I was just wondering for those that gain weight with the implant, did you lose it after it was taken out? And also do your moods change? Or does the weight stay for good! Thank you!:-)
