Have you guys heard of all those nightmare birth control stories? Add another one to the list. Implanon, the little matchstick that gets inserted into your arm and stays there for three years.... This thing causes so much bleeding in some that it leads to anemia, which can be deadly. That's one big problem with it. Isn't it crazy what we women have to go through in the name of family planning? Beware!!!

Everything nowadays, medicines and artificial "health" enhancers, always have potential risks and some side effects. Even though these are made for its beneficial results, it is not without a catch. It is always best to consult with a specialist and even secure a second opinion if necessary before plunging in to treatments or stuff like this.

Raine, a doctor would never let you "plunge" into any medication. They are not supposed to whimsically prescribe medication to patients, if for nothing else than they can get hit with a malpractice suit. The truth is that all treatments and medication carry a risk of side effects, even for the best candidate. You or your doctor have no way of telling if you are going to be in the .01% of those who suffer the worst of those consequences.

How come people are so stupid to choose these methods when there are more humane and equally safe options? But I know crazy people like this, who would not choose the pills just because that would make them fatter... so they would rather choose something like this, which could be lethal... because beauty is more important than health for some this days...
