Experience

I had my first implant at 15 for around 1 year, I had a period for a month non stop and was told that this was normal. I had my first one removed just after a year due to tender/lumpy breasts and then had it re implanted 2 months after. I’ve now come off the implant and have noticed a big change in my skin and also weight, all is better! ☺️

Experience after taking

Best decision ever, my mood skin and weight has all gone back to normal. I haven’t currently had a period so I’m unsure how long this will take. I wish I had it removed sooner!
