i am currently on depo, and i am coming off it due to massive weight gain, have gone up 4 dress sizes in 6 months... next tuesday i am getting janelle (implanon sp?) put in my arm but i read it has the same side affects as depo does that mean weight gain also?
i've personally never heard of it but i took the time to give it a good read. Only difference really between the Janelle and the implanon (Nexplanon) is the Janelle is two implants. I personally have the Nexplanon, which is a new version of the implanon and i have had a massive weight gain as well, so yes i think they are the same side effects.
Implanon and Janelle (Norplant II) - Hormonal, progesterone-only. Prescription and fitting required, including large needles and local anesthetic in some cases. Both Implanon and Janelle are implants inserted under the skin of the upper arm. Janelle has two implants and Implanon has one. Both are effective for five years. Side effects are similar to the Depo shot. Implants are a great choice because they are maintenance free after the insertion site(s) heal.
thanks i have just been reading the site, and think i might cancel my appointment and just go on the pill... although the good thing about the implant is that you are very fertile after it and people get pregnant as soon as they come off.
I had the implant in for 3 years had it out in january and have only had 2 periods since and been ttc since jan 10th this year so not everyone is fertile.... Just thought id let you no before you decide what to have x
it works both ways, my sister had her 1st implant in and it took 11months to get pregnant, she had another put in after that for 3years then had it removed and fell pregnant within the first month... It really just depends. I have noticed though, people that get cramping or any other sign of menstruation during the implant, are fertile quicker.
