Experience

I used the implant for three years, and loved it – my periods stopped (for me, that was really convenient), I can see that it’s there but don’t have to remember to do anything every day, and I didn’t notice any negative side effects (though I had acne beforehand and still have it, so not sure what effect the implant is having). At the end of three years, I replaced the implant with a new one – this time, I’ve had irregular spotting, which took nearly six months to settle down. I now have a very occasional (but hard to predict) light period. Overall, I’m still very satisfied with the implant.
