Experience

After being on different pills for 6 years, Nexplanon is great in comparison. No repeated appointments to get more prescriptions, no having to find time around work to go to the pharmacy, and although Nexplanon still has a negative effect on my mood when it is first put in and when it’s ready to come out, this is NOTHING in comparison to the negative effects of the pill, both negative mood and reduced sex drive.
