Definitely not the Depo. I only had one shot and spent the whole 3 months having HORRIBLE side effects.

I bled for an entire year on the depo, it was absolutely horrible. I have the nexplanon now and so far the only side effect I have had is minimal spotting and it's really only a slight pink tint when I wipe. Which is totally great for me because I have always had horrid bleeding.

The exact same happened to me. Think it's over now finally.

How long have you had Implanon? Any side effects?
