Experience

I like the implant as I know I can’t forget to take it, or it become ineffective by having a stomach bug like the pill. Getting it put in and out doesn’t hurt – they use a local anaesthetic. You can’t feel it unless you specifically try and find it. Having no periods is a bonus for me too! I did gain weight, but this could be due to other factors.
