If you don't know what Implanon is, you might want to skip this post. If you do, you may well be cheering as you read the title. I have had my Implanon removed after 2 and a bit years of turmoil. I thought it reason to celebrate at the very least with a blog post and a bar of dairy milk now my hormones have started coming back.
Since I first got my Implanon, I have put on nearly 2 stone. I've had a couple of illnesses to contend with but I can't help feeling the two are related as I look back at photos of me I can almost draw a timeline of slim > fat!
The removal wasn't really painful and the after math nowhere near as bad as when it went in. I just have a few bruises and had to wear a bandage and paper stitches for a few days. It's a week today since I've had it removed and my weight is still the same, but I think I look a bit less bloaty. We shall see. I'll let you know.
