    I completely agree with you, having the same experience and going to have mine taken out next week. The doctor did mention that she's heard of some kind of hormone that can be taken every three weeks, to me that seems a little bit mad though.

    I have had the Implanon in since February 12th 2005. I too have noticed my sex drive is pretty much non-existent. Not really a problem as I dont have a boyfriend, but I'd still like to think the opposite sex spins my wheels so to speak! I had heavy dark discharge for the first 6 months, then it just stopped. I get my normal period very regularly now every 4 weeks. I have noticed I have mood swings, but thought this was because I've moved halfway across the world (again) and are dealing with returning home after 5 years abroad. Best part is I dont get any type of cramps or pain with my period. I do think I get snappy and unreasonable at times which concerns me, but I'm not anywhere near as tired as I used to be at that time of the month. I have more energy now. Interested to read about the coil - I've always kind of freaked about that. The pill is a definate no-no. Too many women dying from blod clots in my country (NZ). Thanks for your comments. Its the first time I've read other peoples experiences - no-one in this country has even HEARD of this contraception. I enjoy people freaking out when they feel it smile

    i have had this fitted for 8 months now, i had a baby 1 year ago and suffered with postnatal depression. i had this fitted and after recovering from depression i felt like i was going back to the deression. my mood swings are terrbile, i fight with my partner and take things out on my friends and family (and i dont mean it) . i havent had a period for the whole 8 months, which sounds great but its not. My sex drive has also decreased, i feel like am not good enough to my partner :-( . i just want it all to stop. i am defo going the doctors to get it removed next week. Its not fair on myself or my family and friends.
