Hey all. I'm sure this has been posted before but I didn't see anything super recent.
I have a major love-hate relationship with birth control. I was on the pill for a bit, but I'm a piece of shit and can never remember to take it at the same time every day and was terrified of getting pregnant on it.
I got the Nexplanon implant about 2.5 years ago. It was okay at first, but the last six months or so have been fucking hell. I have gained weight like crazy without changing my eating habits and started getting two periods a month. Now, I've been bleeding or spotting for a month straight.
I have an appointment tomorrow to schedule removal of the implant and insertion of an IUD (hormonal). Anyone have one? What are your experiences with it (ie weight gain, whether or not your period stopped, cramping, etc.)?
