Experience

On the whole I am very pleased with my implant, it was easy have to put in, and I haven’t experienced migraines which I did when I took the pill years ago. I also don’t have to do anything with it for 2 years now which is ideal. I have found that the implant has had an impact on my periods. When it was first put in I had a period of a few months, and while the bleeding was lighter, it went on for a long time. I now manage that by taking a pill to control the bleeding, and I now only spot a little every few months. For me, this isn’t too inconvenient and I have a plan to come off the pill in a few months to see if my body has got used to the implant yet, but I can understand that it could be a big issue for some people. I would also mention that you can easily feel the implant in your arm. It doesn’t bother me, and it’s not painful or in the way, but if you are squeamish you might not be keen on it.
