Experience

I went on Impanon after experiencing bad side effects with the pill, and struggling with my iron levels due to heavy periods. For the first 2-3 weeks I had very bad mood swings and cravings, which have since settled down and regulated – although I am currently on holidays from work, so that may have helped that! My period has stopped completely, and after a few cramps and digestive issues in the first few weeks (probably related to the cravings) I have not noticed any side effects.
