Experience

I have had the implant in for 3 months so far, I had major bruising at the site and it was very painful insertion process. I bruised for 3 weeks. I have had constant daily spotting since sometimes accompanied by cramps in my uterus and kidney region. My doctor advised me to see how it goes as I was also bleeding constantly on the progesterone injection and pill. I used to be fine on combined pill so maybe my body just hates progesterone.
