Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
for more than 2 years I have struggled with different side effects, one by one I eliminated vitamins or medications until recently all side effects are back to back. If I have a headache and back ache in the morning by the evening there are other side effects, they alternate on the daily. At this point I have consulted 2 Doctors, Urgent Care and ER, no one Doctor will remove this Implanon. I've been told the Doctor who put it in must take it out and I was insulting the Doctor by asking another one to remove it. My heart thumps out of my chest and I fear i have little time and I've gone so far as to trying to cut it out myself. I want this foreign device out of my system before it's too late!!!
