Which would you recommend? I cant take the pill because every kind makes me vomit all night long, and I had the Mirena and that fell out so I will not have anything inside of me.

I've never had the Implanon but DEFINITELY dont get the shot. It sucks and has horrible side effects.

I had the implanon and I think it was a good birth control. It may or may not be the cause of my weight gain haha.

My doctor recommended not getting either of those. The implannon has been taken off the market multiple times and the shot just sucks.

The shot is terrible! I gained a 100 pounds in six months and had a 28 day period coming off of it!

I had both. They're the same thing BUT I had more problems with the shot. With the shot they reccomend you take calcium and folic acid supplements because it does something to your bones. I was 14 and was on it for 3 years and I had to drop out of PE class in highschool because I couldn't run, my hips hurt so bad. I got off it and it took 1 year to return to normal. Also had implanon after my daughter for 2 years I loved it! I was kind of heavy though, close to 200lbs so its not as effective. and my periods were regular and then irregular. usually they stop in smaller women though.
