    i have had the implant for over a year now and it has to be one of the worst decisions i made! I constantly feel hungry as the hormone in it increases your appetite and i have went from a size 10/12 to a 16/18 in one year!! I have an appointment to get it removed in 2 weeks .. so hopefully things improve when i get it out.

    And as for the doctors sayin \"there is no evidence that implanon puts weight on people\" - that is a complete load of rubbish! obviously if the majority of women are coming back and sayin my weight has ballooned in a short period of time then i think somethings going on!!

    it may bot \"add\" any weight to you but it certianly increases your appetite ...
