Experience

When I first got the implant about 4/5 years ago my sex drive dramatically decreased and then about 3 years after having it, when I got it changed it came back. My mood swings are awful and I am very snappy and find the smallest of things irritate me. I constantly feel sick and get a lot of headaches. I suffer with bad acne around my chin and cheek area and also my chest and shoulders. I used to get back acne right at the begging really bad but that cleared up strangely but instead moved onto different parts of my body. I get cystitis often. The only good thing I find is I don’t have to worry about taking a pill daily, I rarely get periods and if I do it’s either a little bit of pink discharge type stuff or brown, it’s rarely ever a proper period. I’ve only gained a little bit of weight, about a stone so nothing dramatic.
