Experience

I had a poor experience on the implant and was really low in mood and extremely tearful. It also gave me spotting for the entire duration which is why I had it removed. Not sure if I would try it again but I didn’t like the feeling of the bar in my arm, so probably not.

Experience after taking

It was a total turn around after having the implant removed. I no longer felt extremely low in mood, spotting stopped and my period returned to normal in a month or two.

Had a similar experience?
