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.
