When I say it has been a struggle, I mean that it has been a extreme struggle. From my mood changes, to new found acne, it’s been hard. I’ve had heavy discharge and bleeding, worsened migraines, fatigue, weight gain, and the list just goes on and on and on.
Like I had said in my previous post, I thought it would be good, convenient, and effective. However my expirence has not been the best.
As you may know any form of hormonal birth control can effect your mood. Also I’m sure you’re aware that life is a fickle thing that throws unexpected events in from time to time.
Since making the original post I’ve had some things happen in my life. My mother and I are being forced to move out of our current home by November 1st. We don’t have loads of money coming in, so it’s becoming a stressful and constant worry.
Before that was even an issue I was already fight with extreme mood swing, and unusual bouts of depression and anxiety. With more stress being added to the table things have just gotten worse. To be honest I’m taking things day by day. The bleeding and discharge has also worsened.
I’ve talked to my GYN about everything, and all she could say was my case was a rarity. I’ve decided to have it removed and look at my other options. I’m might just go back to the pill. But the thing about having it removed is that I have to go and see some completely different GYN. I just find it funny that they can put it in but can’t remove it. Doesn’t make much sense to me.
So that’s where I’m at with it. I don’t know if I would ever think about doing another implant or even an IUD. Since I’ve done much more research I’ve read horror stories.
If you’ve had a bad expirence with Nexplanon, or other forms of birth control like it, I would urge you to share. The more information out there, the more women can avoid these types of situations.
