I am 39 years old and I have very heavy periods, I have always been afraid of birth control pills, i finally broke down and triend the Mirena and it kept coming out, now my doctor has talked to me about the implanon, and I am a little afraid I have an appointment set up to have this procedure done but am worried about blood clots strokes and such due to me being a little over wieght Diabetic, and taking meds for blood pressure.
