Implanon Report: Inserted September 2007 I've
A following Implanon side effect report was submitted by a user.
Female patient reported the following Implanon side effects :
Inserted September 2007, I've experienced constant fatigue, weight gain/unable to lose weight, among other things(strangley enough though a perfectly normal period considering I was diagnosed with endomitriosis 6 yrs prior). But the biggest side effect I would have to say is losing the implant in my arm. I have currently spent all day at the dr's office trying to find it, with ultrasound after ultrasound and now a MRI scheduled in a couple days. SERIOUSLY?? Not only is this really stupid and inconvenient, this is costing me a ton of money a month from Christmas.

Record and Track Your Side Effects
It is very important to keep track of all side effects and discuss them with your doctor. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.
