    They give you a local anesthetic where they will insert the implanon usually inside upper arm. Then they will cut you slightly and push in the rod. You don't feel it though as it will be numb from the first needle. They then put a stitch where it went and a bandage/plaster over it. Nothing too it. Bruises a bit but heals within a week usually. Its much worse getting it out.

    [​IMG]
    she numbed the area they put the needle in and injected it in me, well i think??
    If she did cut i didn't feel it,

    This was my arm the day after, it really wasn't that bad, just abit numb for abit

    Ok, my implant was for hormonal treatment for endometriosis, so maybe it's different to the contraceptive one but I had it in an injection form. It was done on my bum (just above actually) as that's less painful, there was no cutting, no local anistheic and yes it was a bit sore but not that much. Definitely manageable. I would ask at your GP what their method is.

    I've not actually had it but have done a lot of research when i was considering it and i was told it would be done how kaci said hers was. then to remove it you get a local aneasthetic and they cut the top of your arm and take it out.

    I had this but suffered really nasty depression and had no idea there was a link. I already had depression but was mega low once I'd had this implant....I thought it was fab until I realised this was what made me feel so down:cry:


    Just letting you know in case you have suffered from depression before, this wasn't a side effect that I was aware of when I had it put in :cry:

    no not asleep just get a local anesthetic injected in your arm to numb the area. Its really not that bad but implanon did not agree with me and it took me forever to convince em to take it out.... had to see 3 drs

    Also, you can end up with quite a large cut to take it out if they happen to make the cut in the wrong place. I ended up with an 'x' mark
