Experience

I had originally had a terrible experience with the implant and began this to help my heavy bleeding that caused my anemia. I’ve had a usually long period now it’s lighter and tends to be darker blood or dried blood. Also, it gives me random cramps but they are being less and less. My sex drive has decreased a lot and after sex I’m really sore and tender after.
