Experience

I began to experience sever anxiety and paranoia which led to depression and sympathized with suicide. I went to 5 doctors to find out what the problem was, they all told me I was just an anxious person so I went to therapy. It didn’t help. Finally a Doctor suggested I take out the implanon and I was better within 24 hours. I wasted 3 years of my live with detrimental impact to my personal relationships, my work relationships, my ability to get things done.
