Can I take microlite pill while on implanon to stop bleeding and is there side effects? I am worried I will have bad side effects as I am goin on hols

Yes: You can take a combined estrogen/levonogesterol pill when on implanon, in fact, doctors may recommend this to help with some of the breakthrough bleeding that can occur while on implanon. At your age, the only possible side effect would be an increased risk of blood clot, but only likely if md said you were at increased risk for blood clot, or had previous liver tumor. Otherwise, you're fine!

So I'm getting Skyla placed tomorrow. I had implanon and had weight gain and an unending cycle. What are the chances of the same side effects?

So I'm getting Skyla placed tomorrow. I had implanon and had weight gain and an unending cycle. What are the chances of the same side effects?

Low: You may have bleeding at first with the Skyla while the receptors are being primed but this is most often in the first month. The incidence drops monthly. There is an average 10 pound weight gain each year with DepoProvera but studies have shown no weight change with the IUDs or implants. There is less hormone exposure with Skyla so less risk. Hope this helps.

Implanon: Implanon is a progesterone only contraceptive. Abnormal bleeding, whether that is bleeding every day, no bleeding at all or anything in between, is the biggest side effect. Many people are like you and have no significant bleeding. It is a long acting contraceptive. This does not negate the fact that you should still use condoms to protect against sexually transmitted diseases.

Had abortion pills 2nd-4th april. Implanon on left hand on 14th april. Planing on taking Accutane next week side effects?

Had abortion pills 2nd-4th april. Implanon on left hand on 14th april. Planing on taking Accutane next week side effects?

Sounds good: There will not be any interaction between the implanon/nexplanon and the accutane. Most doctors want you to be on a reliable birth control before starting that medication -- and now you are on one of the most reliable forms there is! The main side effect of Accutane is dry skin and eyes. Your doc will tell you other side effects to watch out for. Good luck.

Recently had a Jadelle implant put in (5 months ago) after using an Implanon for six years. I am getting much more obvious side effects should I swap?

Recently had a Jadelle implant put in (5 months ago) after using an Implanon for six years. I am getting much more obvious side effects should I swap?

Implanon/nexplanon: Theoretically any symptoms you had with implanon will be the same with nexplanon. Having said that the symptoms you describe are side effects of progesterone only contraception such as the nexplanon. The symptoms are therefore expected side effects. Speak to your doctor. Perhaps there is another equally effective for you contraceptive. Maybe the nuvaring or OCPs if remembering daily meds is ok.

My implanon contraceptive expired august 012, 1yr ago, are there any negative side effects to watch for? No insurance $ or pcp, help please.

No health insurance: Lack of health insurance doesn't mean you can't get quality medical care. Check out some options I put together at http://alvinblin. Blogspot. Com/p/low-cost-medicaldentalpharmacy-options. Html. Your family physician can easily remove your contraceptive & offer you another one/type. Of course, as of next tue, oct 1st, you can start searching for affordable insurance via your state's aca exchange.
