1) Do you still have periods? If not, how long did it take them to stop?
2) What, if any, side effects did you have?
3) For overweight people-- Did your weight factor in in any way in getting your doctor to agree to the Implanon?
General question for anyone who can answer it: Is bone density loss a concern with Implanon like it is with Depo?
In short, I'm getting fed up with my birth control pill (Amethyst- generic for Lybrel) and constant spotting issues and am only willing to consider methods that eliminate periods. Stacking a different pill would not be ideal due to the timing restraints on when my insurance would pay for a new pack (they will not pay for a refill at the 3 week mark, which is when I'd need a new pack if I wanted to stack). I used to be on Depo and wish I still was, but my doctor wanted me off it due to family history of Osteoporosis. Also, FWIW, I am overweight. I'm not sure if that matters more with BC pills or Implanon or if they're equal.
