    and then had it removed? I had mine out on Monday (now wednesday) and I've been bleeding ever since it came out, any ideas how long it will last? Will it just be like a normal period? Did anyone find it easier to loose weight after having it removed? I'm hoping it will for me x x

    hiya, i had it in, and after having it removed i was healthy eating so im not sure if it will help, but a lot of contraceptives can make u gain or lose weight, i think if your eating well then u will see results :)
    as for the period i cant remember hun, but got a massive scar from having it removed! xxx

    Yeah I had a nasty scar too :( my periods were all over the place when I was on it an it took a good three months for them to settle after it came out? But I did have a coil put in the same day so that could be why? Give it a week then if it's not stopped go an see the GP :)

    I had the implanon and thought it was making it hard to lose weight but when I had it taken out I didn't really see any difference so I'm not sure whether the hormones had any bearing on my weight gain. I have since had another baby and am considering the implanon again but am not sure. As for the bleeding I think I may have just had a normal-ish period when it came out.

    it doesnt hurt as they give u an anesthetic (sp?) the same as when they put it in, although it does ache and bruise up afterwards xxx
