Experience

I was looking for an alternative from combined pill. (Taken for 15 years) discusses this with the nurse. It ‘’may’ do this. It ‘may’ do that. Couldn’t rely on not having a period. Constant spotting. Very grumpy too.

Experience after taking

Went straight back onto the pill so everything went back to normal. Spotting stopped right away. Gave the implant 9 months so should have been enough time for my body to settle.

Had a similar experience?
