Experience

I got the implant because my periods were irregular (none for 3 months then 2 in a month). My doctor assured me this would fix this. Oh boy, did it not! I was having periods every other week and my doctor didn’t see this as an issue for quite some time. The periods were heavy and super painful too. So bad that I collapsed in Amsterdam and scared my best friend half to death.

Experience after taking

I got the implant removed and I had the hormonal coil fitted. Dream come true! Regular light periods like before and mysex drive is back to how it was when I was younger.
