Experience

Had the implant after my first pregnancy. The installation quick and not painful. Feels weird but kind of quirky to feel it under the skin. I’m not sure whether this was due to the implant or some kind of postnatal depression but the mood swings were horrific (the situation improved after the implant removal). When my periods returned after the pregnancy, it was constant, though light bleeding. I had to have the implant removed, and after stopping breastfeeding returned on a combined pill, which stopped the bleeding.
