Pretty much the same as most hormonal birth controls. No major weight gain though. Stopped periods for me and random pregnancy feeling. But not bad. Totally bareable.



And no it doesnt hurt at all to get implanted. Youre completely numb.
All I felt was the burning of the numbing agent and that was it.

I must be that 1 person, I didn't gain any weight on it. I think nursing the entire time on it helped though, plus I was going and doing things like seeing Tony DJ everywhere. (Hes such a dickweed and his girlfriend is ugly) ANYWAYS! lol



It did make me feel shitballs insane and my doc wants me on it and I refuse.

I have never been on Mirena, but I am def. a Depo fan. I was on the Depo for 3 year with no side effects but the weight gain (but if you're active, and are into staying fit this won't be a problem what so ever). I really don't call this a side effect some women might, but I didn't have a period what so ever, the whole 3 years I was on it, which might have been cause of the weight gain. After I stopped taking it, it took a year for me to get pregnant.
