Experience

I’ve been known to have migraines and so the implant was a good option for me. However I’ve been really unwell recently, both mentally and physically. I had such a heavy period and it lasted 1 week stopped and then came back 4 days later! I’m considering getting the coil, but I’ve had a very wobbly journey with pills and the Implant. I feel fine for a while but when I get down it’s very hard to pick my self up!
