Meet the Implant ✨
• Can last for up to 3 years of continuous birth control. 👏🏽 • Inserted by a health care provider under the top layer of skin in the upper arm . 💪
• Made of flexible plastic, the size of a small match stick.
• It is a “get it and forget it” method because after getting it inserted you don’t have to do anything to make sure it works! •Over 99% effective. 🙌🏽 • As always, use with condom to protect against STIs. ✨ #WAMHS #birthcontrol #nexplanon #getitandforgetit #continuousbirthcontrol #knowyourbirthcontrol #mondaymethod

Goodbye, Nexplanon.
.
Hormones are no joke, my friends. At first, it came on so slowly that I didn’t even acknowledge the symptoms. Then, I started having brain fog, random days of feeling “off”, anxiety, crying over dirty Tupperware, and some serious fatigue. It’s bewildering and downright unsettling when you feel out of control of your emotions. My body had intense, intermittent hormonal reactions, and I felt out of control. So, after trying a variety of prescribed solutions that would allow the implant to stay in my arm, it was time to say goodbye.
.
I know it works out well for some, but Nexplanon was not good to me, and I’m so thankful to have this out of my body.
.
I’ve read so many stories of women fighting really difficult symptoms with Nexplanon/Implanon. You aren’t alone, and you can insist upon having it removed, without fulfilling some sort of trial period or alternative solutions that your doctor or practitioner recommends. Listen to your body.

Day 7: I did a core strength class 🏋🏽‍♀️and swam for 30 min. 🏊🏽‍♀️As a small treat, I had a small session with a personal trainer! We talked about diet and exercises I can do on the machine if I ever miss a class. The hardest exercises were the lateral pull-ups (?) and def the easiest were the core rotations with the 10lb weights (still a workout tho!) I think I wanted to cry after we were done but she was so nice and sweet 😍 if I ever get the money to, 10/10 would hire her as my personal trainer. ALSO MY #NEXPLANON BRUISE IS ALMOST GONE. One of these days I’ll take pics at the gym 😅😅😅#queerfitness #queergirlenergy #decolonizingfitness #swimming #cardioworkout #qtpocmagic #coreworkout

This was almost as traumatizing as getting a live ant stuck in my ear 🐜

Goodbye Nexplanon! This birth control implant made me feel like complete garbage. My depression and anxiety worsened. I had my period for 4 months! Needless to say I was fed up and extremely anemic and decided to have it removed. I cannot wait to lose weight easier and have my old life back.

So I am wearing real pants for the first time in almost 3 weeks due to the incision on my belly button. It's *slightly* uncomfortable but bearable. I think jeans will still be a no-go for a week or two longer.
I'm also going to go to the gym tonight and walk on the treadmill and take it slow and easy. I'll let y'all know how that goes.

Man I want to get into makeup, I don’t wear it because I have the slightest idea of where to start. Like what shade is gonna match golden graham cracker? 🍪. I refuse to look like Michael Jackson rip 🙏🏾 (a lot of girls wearing makeup look like my nigga mj with the lace front). But I’m Posting this because It’s been a struggle learning my “new skin” after this implanted birth control #nexplanon I’m tempted to switch to something else. but yesterday was a good day. And I’m glowin. #notpregnant lol

Day #3 after getting my #Nexplanon removed and my skin is SO clear now. I am super happy that I got it removed.

This bruise is ridiculously large and painful. 😣 #needles #bruise #birthcontrol #nexplanon

Day 3 going to the gym. first time weight training. Everything hella hurts but that’s ok. If you look closely, you’ll see the bruise and the scar where I got my nexplanon taken out. A few weeks without it and my hormones are finally starting to adjust. I think I’ll just take the pill next time. #queerfitness #weighttrainingforwomen #birthcontrol #nexplanon #nexplanonremoval

So I had my follow up appointment yesterday and everything seemed fine. Doctor did a vaginal swab with speculum for a different test. About an hour later I started to have some pain on my right surgical incision. I decided to try to sleep it off but when I woke up I was in even more pain. Hubby took me to the ER. After CT scan, ultrasound, and pain meds, turns out I had some internal bleeding, not a lot but enough to cause pain. Today I'm feeling much better, no pain, no tenderness, back to how I was feeling before.
Before the ER visit everything was going great. I even was up for sex, took it slow but it was amazing! My sex drive is back full force now that my birth control is completely out of my system. I'm still not comfortable wearing real pants yet as it pulls on my belly button so I've been living in high waisted leggings/skirts/dresses. I'll give it another week before I try paints again. All in all everything is healing up fine.

🌘🌗After so many battle scars, this is a positive one that connects my own story to many other women’s, to history, and to the moon. I am forever grateful to the research, science and reproductive rights warriors & martyrs who paved the way to give me access to the contraceptive implant “implanon” that was placed over my left bicep almost four years ago. After a lot of trauma it saved me the terror of an unplanned pregnancy. 🌓🌒
For over a year of deep reflection and listening to my body I took the next giant step and had the lil’ magical progesterone rod (the size of a match stick) removed. I’m so excited to move forward after this decision, I know it will only push me to become even more aware and attuned to my body’s cycles and rhythms. Honestly it’s thrilling and terrifying. Anyone who wants to talk about it hit me up!!! 🌝
