Today, I had the contraceptive implant removed from my arm after having had it in for three years. I was one of the unlucky people whose body sticks to it. It took half an hour to cut and pull a tiny little stick out of my arm. FML

And now I'm suddenly scared of having mine out.

I can't tell if "sticks to it" was planned or not considering t was a stick

You get off on being thumbed down, don't you?!

I wonder how many she will be able to accumulate over the next few days.

I don't know I did that just to find out how many thumbs down I'll get

24-I wonder how Baustigt would feel about being called 'Baughist'. Sounds like a rare delicacy.

9- If she really DOES get off on being thumbed down, that could be why she felt compelled to mention a sticky situation. ;)

30: jeez sorry I accidentally added an extra g!! And jeez people quit creeping on my profile :(

unknown_user5566 26

36- If you don't want people looking at your profile, I'd suggest that you make it private.

Lmao 35... Oh. She knows EXACTLY what she's doing....

At least the people won't stick it to you anymore

Nope, the puns just aren't "sticking" with me

Quit creeping on your profile? What the hell do you think profiles are for?

24- 'the great' You disgraced yourself by brown nosing.

Wow 42 thumbs down within an hour. I'm doing a great job at failing today :)

75: Try again tomorrow, but without the cliché. Downvotes are just a part of the game.

Baustigt, hi I'm back and being stupid again!! Sorry I misspelled your name earlier it's just really easy to misspell, also glad you know Baughist, he's a funny guy!

if u can't me nice why not keep it to yourself?

No one deserves that, and it definitely does suck. Good FML, OP

Good job being smart and protecting against the most expensive sexually transmitted parasite ever: a baby! (I have 2 kids so take the "parasite" thing as a joke please...)

I can't tell if "sticks to it" was planned or not considering t was a stick

I thought it was a pun. Until I realized there was an actualy stick. Still think there's a pun.

Must have* And yes, it probably hurt a lot.

No need to be a smart ass 29 And thanks 18, it's 6am here... Still half asleep

In Nordrag's defense, you left the door WIDE open for a smartass comment with your stupid one.

Ahh, the old "I'm really tired" excuse. Classic. It's right up there with "It was my cousin/sister/brother/pet iguana"

it wouldn't have hurt a heck of a lot considering they would have to put numbing cream on.

85, I know, numbing cream makes any pain fade away. That's why they use that now on double bypass patients because they know theres nothing that stops deep tissue pain like a topical cream...

Beat me to it, 32. I said almost the exact same thing in response to another useless comment on the recent mid-life crisis FML. I think I am going to copy and paste that comment for future reference; it seems that I've been needing to use it quite often as of late.

Man,the people sure are sticking it to ya for not being able to find a good pun Oh well, it's just a stick in the road isn't it

Makes me queasy just thinking about it :(

52- He meant that since she was one in a few to have it stick to her (assuming that it's uncommon) then she sound go buy a lottery ticket because it shows she's a person who get the unlikely things. Not a very good joke though.

And now I'm suddenly scared of having mine out.

Agreed. I was definitely NOT warned of this.

I have been considering taking mine out for a while now... Not anymore!

Me too. Could have gone without seeing this!

Ladies, don't let one bad experience ruin it. Chances are very high that you'll be fine.

As long as your doc knows what they're doing you'll be fine. Had mine out 2 years ago w/o any problems. I did go w/ the IUD going forward though, lasts a couple years longer.

You're scared because of a very rare condition? Better start living in a bubble.

I only had mine in for 6 months and it fused to me, took almost an hour to take out and scarred. It isn't a matter of simply the dr knowing what they are doing, there was tissue still stuck to it after he took it out, so it was actually attached to my flesh. With most people, they just have to cut a slit in the skin and push it out.

Mine got stuck, you're numbed when they take it out though, you can feel the doctor pulling at it to release it, it's far from comfortable but it's not painful, more mentally disturbing, lol

It's not that rare. I know mines done it cause I can feel it. When you get the implant your immune system attacks it and that causes the build up of a capsule around the rod. This essentially 'sticks' to the surrounding tissue so it has to be cut out. It happens an awful lot and you should have been told when you got it done.

@tkay94 - How old are you? If the 94 in your username refers to your birth year then you clearly have no-idea what you're talking about. Your mother couldn't have fallen pregnant with an Implanon/Nexplanon rod in because Implanon was first used in Indonesia in 1998, Australia in the early 2000s and USA in 2006. Please don't try to give advice to people on the internet without getting your facts straight first.

I watched a video of it getting inserted and removed as well read up on the possible issues. Helps to be prepared.

I feel the same... Although... I have had mine in for under a year... So I still have plenty of time untill it gets removed....but like yous... I'm a tad worried now :/ lol

The irony of your comment is overwhelming.
