Just today, I got the Implanon. If you've never heard of it, it's an implantable birth control. It's a stick, about the length of a toothpick and width of a matchstick that gets inserted to the inside of your upper arm. It's kind of sore right now but, that's to be expected. I was on Loestrin 24, but after finding out that I have a brand new fibroid (I just had some removed in July) that is larger than one that was left in by my doc during surgery, I've decided to go an alternate route. So this stuff is almost like the Depo shot only I WILL NOT gain weight Now, this only contains pregestin, there is no estrogen or testosterone (like the depo) in it. So either my periods will stop altogether or I'll have some spotting here and there. I'll report to you all and let you know in a few months whether or not this does anything to my curls.

At the very top of my head (close to center forehead) my hair is 3c and it is also 3c at the nape near my neck. The rest is a 4a/4b combo.
