Experience

Generally, good contraception, but not ideal for me. This is my third implant. With the first and second ones, I noticed no difference. This third one, I wish I knew the brand, is a deal-breaker for me. My period is very irregular and usually ends up lasting 10-14 days. My Sex drive is pretty much nonexistent. Hence why I’m removing this contraceptive after 8 years of using it.
