Experience

The implant has made my periods very irregular and overall has made me bleed more than if I wasn’t on anything at all. At its worst I’ve had a 24 day bleed with a two week break followed by a 10 day bleed. My bleeding is never less than 10 days anymore and it is quite painful. The periods are not particularly heavy but they just linger for a long time and I never know when they are going to come.
