weight after IMPLANON

i put weight on when i had mine in, and so after a year i had it removed and i lost a bit of weight, that was without dieting tho, so i expect you might find losing weight easier. everyone has different opinions tho so i might be wrong!! lol x

I put 4 stone on when i had mine in, as soon as i had it out i started to loose and i'm now 33lbs down :)

That implant was horrific!

did you try to loose weight o did your diet remain the same and it was the implant made the difference

Oh god yeah, i tried so hard to loose the weight when it piled on. I went through the doctors with it and when they realised the weight wouldn't come off - they took it out, i don't think my PCOS helped either as this makes it difficult to loose the weight anyway. I certainly wouldn't have put 4 stone on that fast with the help of that implant.

I'm glad it's out now, just a long road to getting the weight off now!!

I haven't gained any weight on Implanon, and I haven't found losing difficult either.

I was on Depo Provera injections before, and don't think that contributed to my weight gain either.
I had the implant in January, and have up to now found it's had no effect whatsoever on my weight loss. In fact, the fact that it doesn't increase your appetite like the pill and the injection does, is one of the main reasons I chose to change my contraceptive methods.
I put on a stone when I started on the pill. And the same when I switched to the injection.
It hasn't slowed my weight loss down either.

There you go then...i suppose this highlights the point that everyone is different :)

When I got the implanon put in back in May 2010 I weighed 170, I got it taken out on October 13th 2010 and was at 186.5. So far I haven't really lost any of it, but I know the implanon caused the gain because I was eating right and going to the gym and even working with a personal trainer. Nothing helped. So at the end I quit, maybe if I get back on the wagon I will lose the weight now that it is out. It caused a whole host of bad side effects. Since removal though I haven't gotten a period at all, just cramping, but no period. So confused by it all and slightly angry. Why didn't they say that we would gain so much weight so quickly .
I am not sure if this applies to everyone, but when dicussing my weight gain with my GP, she said that both the pill and the injection contain a hormone that makes you hungry, and thus, many, many women gain weight whilst using this mode of contraception. My GP also said that the Implant is completely different, it doesn't release the same hormone, and because it releases the hormones over a very long period of time, you're getting a very steady dose, where as with the injection and pill, it drops off and then, BAM! When you take another or get it again, it spikes again. Like I said earlier, the fact that the G[ said it has no impact on weight gain/loss, is the reason I chose it.
Lulu, I've had mine for the best part of a year and it hasn't killed mine ;)
Or mine! :D

I love having the implant. Apart from the unpredictable periods I haven't had any problems. Any small weight gain I've had I haven't got enough evidence to blame it on the implant. More to blame it on me and bad eating habits, I'll be honest.
Since having the implant 2 years ago I have gained a stone and not been able to loose any, have a period every time I exercise properly and have zero sex drive. :/ When I was on the pill I gained weight too. ;_;
I also have the implant, personally, I think its not 'the implant' that will make anyone gain, even if it increases your appetite, 'we' choose to put the food in our mouths, we dont have too, I cant see how having it would make you gain weight unless you eat what you think you are needing afterall the implant is not full of calories.

We have to take control on our weight, and any weight I have gained or lost has been purely from my munching away or reducing my munching :D

Not sure anyone will agree but thats my opinion :p
Completely agree with Nee. I'm on implanon and have been since I started and I think I've done real well as has Nee. So it's all possible!
