I am a 20 year old female. I got the Nexplanon implant placed in my arm in April of 2015 (I've had it for 1 year and 4 months). At the time I got the implant inserted, I weighed 158 pounds. As of this week, I weigh 190 pounds, for a total of 32 pounds of weight gain in almost a year and a half. I've tried dieting, eating clean and exercising as much as I could, but it was impossible to lose even one pound. It has been really bothering me and making me really upset. Has anyone had significant weight gain with Nexplanon, and were you able to lose the weight after getting it removed? Any stories/experiences would be great to hear!! Thanks so much!

Also, I my eating habits haven't changed since before I got the implant. I also have hypothyroidism, so weight has always been an issue for me but I have never weighed this much in my life before.
Hi, had the same experience and still can't even lose a pound. Did anything work for you?
