I am getting my implanon removed after 6 years and am hoping that the excess weight will be easier to shift as I have heard that implanon can make losing weight difficult.
Anyone else found this to be true?

I haven't had it removed yet, but I have DEFINITELY found it harder to lose weight while on Implanon. It is one of the major downsides of the implant - it's really depressing to be putting in more effort than I have in the past, but getting worse results.
I hope the weight falls off once you get it out! Good luck

I had mine out about 9 months ago and I haven't been able to lose the weight.

Personally I haven't lost any weight in the 3 months since i removed it, but I haven't gained more- that's got to be a good thing Might take more time for my body to balance back out

I have lost 2kg in a month, without much effort.
As opposed to last year, when I ate a very healthy diet with a heap of fruit and vegies, lean protein and no fat, ran every day and trained for roller derby...and didn't lose a single kilo in six weeks. I was so upset and frustrated I gave up.
I ballooned on implanon - gaining nearly twenty kilos in 3 years - and want to lose ten of them.

Thanks for all the replies.
VioletBell- I hope it keeps going well for you. I know exactly how you feel with the weight ballooning even when you are eating healthily and doing some exercise.
Even just a few kilos less would be nice as it would make me feel like I was back in some sort of control over my body rather then the artificial hormones.

Perhaps ver anomalous, but I gained 20 kg in three months with Implanon and lost 15 in two when I got it taken out. There was no way it was shifting when I had it in!

Since having mine removed a month ago, I've lost about a kilo while eating the most unhealthy things and having very little exercise. Before that I had to really cut back on everything and exercise like mad to have basically no effect at all.
Before I had my first implanon put in, I had a three month break off the progesterone mini-pill I'd been on for five years, and dropped eight kilos.

Update, I got the implanon removed this morning and have weighed myself. I will post some updates as to how the weight loss pans out. Fingers crossed.
It may help that I start a new job on Monday where I am going to walk from the train rather then catch the bus (45mins walking one way) in the mornings at least and maybe some arvos where possible.
