Experience

I have had the implant for about 2 and a half years now and I can feel it and about half an hour ago I felt sick and had really bad stomach pains, so I made something to eat and I still feel sick and I don’t know what to do. Do I phone NHS 24 for advice or wait until in the morning and phone my doctors or what do I do because I don’t want to suffer the pain any longer because it is really painful and I can’t lie still in bed and when I lie in bed I’m getting hot and cold flushes and also my periods have been on and off like a yo-yo and now they are late and I don’t know if that’s normal or not.
