Experience

I had the implant for 3 years because I didn’t want to think about contraception everyday (taking the pill) but was too scared to get the coil inserted. While this seemed a good compromise, It decreased my sex drive and the irregular periods were annoying as I could go a few months with nothing but then have a three week long period.
