Is there complications with the implant


#1

Iv had the implant in for over 6 years iv had no problem till now (Iv been single for 5 years) now Iv been seeing someone for 4 months. I’m starting to get symptoms that I might be pregnant but I’ve taken a test and it says negative Iv got two kids already so is there any side affects to the implant

Hello @Dee

Many thanks for your question. The commonest side effect on the implant is irregular bleeding. Some people also experience weight gain, mood changes, acne and reduced interest in sex although no research has proven a link between the implant and these symptoms.

Hope that is helpful.
