I had the implant fitted in November 2015, I have since put on nearly 1 and a half stone, have become extremely moody and emotional, have spots on my face and back, oily skin and very irregular bleeding, also have zero sex drive and it is starting to affect my relationship. It's been complete hell and im thinking about having it removed. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and did it help to have it taken out? Also I need to go on to a different type of contraception but have been told by the family planning nurse that I can not go on to a combined pill as I have a family history of high blood pressure and high colestorol (I do not have either of these). I have been on a mini pill before but it completely messed up my cycle and I was having a full period every other week, this went on for 6 months before I saw a doctor who told me that the mini pill was too strong for me. So I really don't want to go back to the mini pill, just the thought of it makes me feel like crying. I have read that the injection has the same effects as the implant and I'm not really sure what else I can do? Any help would be very much appreciated.
