#33 - The Contraceptive Implant


SO it is done ! 2 hours ago I had a big hollow needle stabbed into me and an implant stick put into my arm. Lol - it wasnt really that horrendous. It was def more painful when i had my belly button pierced but i did have the same reaction afterwards. I felt incredible weak and nauseous and my vision was starting to black out. But I over came it was a glass of water and some coke when i got home.

I'm happy to so that there was no fighting with this doctor - she was lovely and made it all very easy. Which is a good thing since i've been sick all week and me being menstral she would have had a slightly crazy chick attacking her.

So the extremely happy side to all this....I am 100% sure that i'll not fall preggers for 3 years - WHOOO HOOO!

This contraceptive implant is new to me...not the coil thing is it? It sounds like it goes in your arm, is that right?

Yeah I had never heard of it as well until i read about how the uk government is trying to get more teenagers on it as it is so effective a method of birth control.
It is called Implanon... here is the Wikipedia link
IMPLANON

There is alot of various opinions about it - but I had to give it a try as it would be the perfect solution to me as long as i dont get any of the side effects. I feel so happy about not having to take a pill every single day !!! And I love that I def not going to be getting pregnant for 3 years!

But I do know that it isnt available in SA yet.
