I've been having the depo injection and I have gained ALOT of weight

I spoke to the doctor and advised I went back to the implant and I will loose the weight, has anyone else had this??

Thank you

    Your doc is suggesting you go back on the Nexplanon implant? I've had the implant for 3 years, this is the first birth control that I've ever used in my life. I'm at the highest weight that I've ever been at ever in my life and it's happy in the 3 years that I've had this implant. I know everyone is different but I know that this implant is a factor in my weight, no doubt about it.

      Yeah, I used to have the implant and I was fine then, the weight gain has only been since the injection, so I don't know what to do, like will the weight gain carry on??

      No idea. I'm wondering the same thing when I get my out and try something different. Crossing my fingers for a change.
