So it's been about 2 months since I have nexplanon fitted. You can read my first diary post here.
Touch wood, so far, so good! I don't really have much to report but just thought I would do a quick update. I ended up having a period 2 weeks after I had it fitted, I haven't had one since, or any irregular bleeding, which is pretty good I'd say. Although, I do currently feel weird not having a period, but the nurse did tell me that a lot of people on the implant don't get periods.
I went back to the clinic about a month after having the implant fitted as there was still a scar/scab where it was inserted and I was a little worried about it, not knowing anyone else with the implant I couldn't ask anyone to put my mind at rest. But the nurse was fine with it, she said it just my skin, I'm a slow healer and there may always be a scar but it won't be so red after time, so just waiting for that really.
My moods aren't as up and down as they used to be, which I think is a major plus point. So as I said in the begining it's so far so good and I hope it continues this way.
I'm happy to answer any questions/offer advice to anyone so just leave a comment and we can have a chat :)
