I had the implant for five months until I had to have it removed. The depression was awful as were the anxiety attacks. I cried every day and couldn't eat or sleep. I'm pretty sure these are the reasons I have tonsillitis but I just wondered if anyone else has experienced it. The doctor has said it's nothing major but because of my hormones being so out of whack, I am just imagining the worst!
I've been on Nexplanon since January 2014, so just over 1 and a half years. During this time I've felt so run down and believe this is why I caught chicken pox (believe it or not) at the age of 17 - fully blown with the scars to prove it. Not only that but I have had recurring (mild, yet annoying) tonsillitis, along with a tonsil cyst and stones.
I have also had a ridiculous number of anxiety/panic attacks, mood swings and general uncomfortableness that I know are as a result of the implant.
Modern medicines are certainly interesting when it comes to side effects, just not when you're experiencing them!
