Experience

I have gained weight on both occasions of using the implant, suffer tender breasts and I experience headaches. When I first had it refitted I would bleed every other week for 7/8 days, but it seemed to ease off after 4 months and sort of regulate a bit better. The positive is that I haven’t fallen pregnant or had any worries that I might be. And when I removed my first Implant to try for a baby it didn’t impact on falling pregnant. it is also safe to have and breastfeed.
