Experience

Took the pill for 2 years age 16-18 before getting the Nexplanon Implant because I didn’t take my pill at the same time every day or sometimes forgot and needed something more simple. Was absolutely fine for me at the time but I was young and hadn’t discovered any hormone or mental health issues yet (now have general anxiety). So it’s possible it had effects that I didn’t notice at the time. My mum thinks I gained weight at this time but hard to tell as was also going through puberty and a break up age 17
