For some though, it can have some very unfortunate side effects. I personally have quite painful cyclic cramping and a migraine with pms. I thought I would give this ago as it is utterly removable (unlike the injections which I have read has had some disastrous side effects reported by some women)

My Implanon was inserted September 2017 by late November 2017 I had it removed and have only now, come February 2018 have begun overcoming the side effects of it.

Firstly, to have it inserted HURTS. Obviously. I received incredible bruising which took two weeks to actually go away. The rod itself is 4cms long and as wide as a matchstick. So quite a bit of general needs to be placed around to get it in without you writhing in pain.

Many women are lucky to experience no periods whatsoever. For me, the side effects were felt within 24 hours, I was emotionally overwhelmed. Even the sight of emotionally charged ads on tv would make me cry. My first cycle was light and great. The second cycle was 14 days of non-stop bleeding. While it is recommended to “get used” to implanon. My short time on implanon, was horrific for me and it was something I was not going to endure considering the information about the rare side effects which had been seen in studies.  My time on Implanon made me feel emotionally detached, I suffered headaches, angered easily and my sex drive was below freezing the moment it was inserted and there was nothing I could do to stop it. I was conscious of these things but hoped the symptoms would subside… however the symptopms actually got worse so I was not having a bar of that.

I had the Implanon removed which was not too bad of an ordeal besides they fact it was so embedded in there, that my doctor had a very hard time removing it. To this day I still have a scar on my arm to the degree of thinking it was still in there. The insertion site still hurts and it has now been 3 months and finally, regularity seems to be coming back.

I do know some people love it, however, for me it was a very unfortunate experience I wouldn’t wish upon anyone. The studies of the side effects are incredibly scary and it is something you just don’t read until you open the massive multi-folded pamphlet.


Rating: If I could give it zero stars I would.



yespleaseDon’t let the cookie cutter stenciled eyebrows and contoured face control your routine. Don’t change your face. Coming soon, I will share my MUST HAVE items. You will be surprised how simple it is!

You are beautiful!



1. Talks about his ex.

This is the one red flag sign to run for the hills. Men who talk about their exes in your company, especially repetitiously and in a positive nostalgic way are obviously not into you.
This relationship will consist of you wondering if he is still thinking about her, even at the most imitate times . It will cause you to avoid being places that could trigger memories for this man who has a neurotic fixation of the past. This man WILL probably be happy to get into a relationship with you but you will not be at the forefront of their mind. Once, let it slip… if it happens again, its time to get real and know that you are simply a transitional void.

2. He ignores your calls/ texts/ emails
This is yet another flaming red flag to avoid this guy and not make excuses for him. People who are interested want to BUILD a relationship. Lacklustre effort? Time to let them go. These are the types who you know are around and able to communicate with you but seriously.. if a guy is into you, they’ll give you the grace of replying. A guy should NEVER leave you wondering if he is into you you or not.

3. You are last on the “to do list”
If this guy has a myriad of better things to do and often menial things, then seriously. Pay attention. Do not allow yourself to be last on the daily chores list after him watching his favourite tv show. You deserve more than that. You should be one of the first people he speaks to in the morning and the last at night. No ifs or buts.

4. He distances you from his friends/family
This shows he is not open to have you in his life. He is either keeping that distance because he knows your existence with him is only temporary and doesn’t want to complicate things or because he feels they wont approve of you.

5. You are always wondering if he is into you or not.
You will know if a man is into you, Even the most awkward of men will make some level of contact and communicate with you. It is when you reach out to be greeted with nothingness that you should know that he simply is not into you and to not waste your time on someone who cant be bothered making the effort.
