Those of you who have had a bad reaction to the Pill, what was your experience with the Implanon?
I’m in my mid-twenties and was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 16. Since then, I’ve tried multiple brands of contraceptive pills, but I have significant side effects when taking them. I get fevers and chills, abdominal pains and vomit all day. I’ve tried skipping the sugar pills but the same thing happens. With some brands, I am sick the day after starting them. I recently followed this up with my doctor as it’s been getting worse and affecting my ability to work, and was prescribed the Impanon but I’m worried it will have the same effect. Is anyone in the same boat as me? I’ve brought up having a hysterectomy as I’m not interested in having children (never have been) but was told I could change my mind and would regret it in the future.
Any advice on if the Implanon works in favour of the Pill or what else I can do to manage my symptoms would be greatly appreciated!
