anyone use the bc implant?
I'm considering switching from NuvaRing to the BC implant. Does anyone who has it have any advice for me in regards to whether or not it's worth switching? With NuvaRing, my periods are extremely light and last about 4 days, plus I can skip it once in a while if I go to the OB/GYN and get an extra Ring. The only reason I'm thinking about switching is because my insurance is making it more and more difficult to get the Ring. They no longer let me go to whichever pharmacy I want, and the price went up to about $20 a month (after my $100 deductible every January.) So I'm spending a little over $300 a year on NuvaRing. Plus they're getting more strict with how often I get it, so some months I literally have to go to the pharmacy to get the Ring the day I need to put it in because the insurance company can't comprehend the fact that I need 13 rings a year, NOT 12, because a month does not equal 28 days. Anyways, I love the NuvaRing, but it's getting annoying and a little scary having to wait till the last minute to pick up my new Ring every 4 weeks.
So does anyone have any experience with the implant? I'm a little worried about spotting and not knowing when my period will come. I also heard that some people stop having periods on the implant. Has anyone experienced this? Anyone have any really bad experiences on the implant?
Also just thought I should mention, I haven't had kids yet, so I can't get an IUD. Plus, I'm not planning on having kids for at least 2 years.
