I removed my Nexplanon 2 days ago. I had it for 9 months and did not have any problems with it. After all the bad reviews I've heard of this format of birth control I was a little nervous but my body didn't react differently. Decided to remove it because me and my husband decided to start trying to have a baby when he returns home from deployment. I'm so excited! If you have any questions about this birth control and the removal feel free to ask!
