Experience

I had the implant put in when I was 16, and took it out when I was 28. The first few months of a new implant are always a bit mad, so I take the pill to regulate my period, then I’m regular for 3 years. I’ve never had any scares or adverse side affects that I can remember. I only took it to it because I wasn’t in a relationship and I wanted to give my body a break!
