Birth control injection or implant ?

User Profile
Hi there,

I am asking this on behalf of my girlfriend and don't really know much about the different procedures/pills, so give me a chance! sunny
She wants to go off the pill and maybe go for the Injection (which i think would be an every 3 month jab?) or the implant.

We would both like to know which you would either go for yourself, or recommend someone to go for?

If you could get back to us with your honest opinions, we would really appreciate it!

Thank you

It can take many months to get back her fertility when stopping the injection. These forums are filled with questions from women that did not restart their regular cycles many months after stopping the depo shots. I have no experience with the implant.

So do careful research.
