Wedding Woes

Speaking of STF

I am quietly holding out hope I skip AF this weekend. I switched my BC over on Tuesday, took my Nuvaring out Wednesday morning, and normally by today I'd be feeling the arrival...but so far nothing.The rumor is many women stop having periods with implanon, I am hoping I am one.

    Nah, I would know, I know my body too well and I can see the fricking thing in my arm, so I know it is there.

    Overweight WomenThe effectiveness of IMPLANON in overweight women has not been defined because womenwho weighed more than 130%of their ideal body weight were not studied. However, serumconcentrations of ENG are inversely related to body weight and decrease with time afterinsertion. It is therefore possible that, with time, IMPLANON may be less effective in overweightwomen, especially in the presence of other factors that decrease etonogestrel concentrationssuch as concomitant use of hepatic enzyme inducers.In other words, most practitioners won't put them in obese women because they tend to fail. I saw my preceptor at Planned Parenthood turn two women away from Implanon because they were too overwweight.
