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.
