Experience

The implant really effected my mood but it is hard to tell if it was that or personal circumstance. Constant bleeding/spotting in the last 9 months of use and loss of sex drive which the nurse seemed sceptical about. Have since chosen non-hormone based contraceptives I am much happier knowing my mood swings are my own.

Experience after taking

The placebo effect of having it removed gave me great relief.
