Experience

I’ve had the implant twice. At first not having a period made me nervous but a pregnancy test usually calms my nerves. I did notice I gained about 3-4 pounds in the months following having the implant inserted but it’s not continuous weight gain. The womb cramps are not enjoyable but also not as difficult as my period cramps.
