From this study (22 hours ago):
Christie on Oct, 12, 2014:
Female, 47 had norplant 5 years. I was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 38 and now I'm metastatic. I have no family history and the only risk category is birth control.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have had the Nexplanon implant for 6 weeks; prior to the implant i had been taking oral birth control pills for 7 years with perfectly clear skin. I had a mild reaction on my face within the first 4 days of having the implant but it went away after 7 days. For the next 2 1/2 weeks my skin was beautiful and clear. On the week i was supposed to start my cycle, instead of getting it, i received a break out on my forehead and cheek area. No form of topical medication eased the blemishes, although they never came to head and weren't that noticeable. On the day my cycle normally would have ended, i felt a deep pain in my lower chin but no blemishes had surfaced. On the 2nd day 3 small bumps had formed and were very painful but again not very noticeable or red. On the third day, they were very painful, itchy, red, and swollen but still no head. I called the NP who said it was more than likely cystic acne caused by the nexplanon implant. We are going to tdy oral antibiotics to see if it helps ease the pain and swelling and clears up my face. Today, on the fourth day it hasn't gotten any worse but is still extremely painful. Im hoping the Minocycline antibiotics work; otherwise the implant is coming out immediately. It just isn't worth having horrible acne.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
having headaches, nausea, vomiting, feeling overly tired, loss of appetite.
