Experience

I had been on the implant couple of years before and had a positive response to it, so I decided to try it again. This time round I gained half a stone in weight and developed acne after 6 months. I have since had it removed and still struggling with the affects of it.

Experience after taking

My sex drive has increased greatly since its removal, my mood has lifted alot and I don’t feel as low as I once did. I don’t think I will ever get the implant again.
