Can the implant make you gain weight, and if so, do you recommend changing it?
Hi there! Yes, one of the implant’s side effects is weight gain, but it’s not that common, as not everyone will gain weight. My suggestion is to check out FMM’s website. We have a section dedicated to comparing the options. You can choose what you like and we’ll give you the recommendations. For example, if you’re interested in long term options, yes the implant is an option, but so is the IUD, which can be non-hormonal and thus no weight gain. At the end of the day, I hope whichever one you choose, you’re well informed of your choices and are confortable with your contraceptive:)
