does implanon/nexplanon cause cause weight gain?
I'm due to have the implant fitted next week and wondered if anyone on here had it and how it affected your weight loss?
I've been reading online research and patient reviews and am getting slightly concerned that its going to cause weight gain or simply stall my weight loss. At the same time, after reading the other side affects people have had (mood swings, really long, heavy, painful periods etc) I think that that is more likely to cause weight gain than a hormone all on its own, after all a hormone doesn't spontaneously cause fat, but if it makes it difficult to lose weight then i'm worried. When I feel like that I don't necessarily eat more but my calorie count goes through the roof and I don't exercise which = weight gain. My sisters have both had it and haven't experienced any side effects at all, but then they don't need to lose weight.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
My final goal-140lbs
