Experience

I had the implant in as I had been on the injection for a few years and couldn’t stay on it due to osteoporosis risks. I thought the implant would be the same but after 12 months I started to get extream anxiety, panic attacks and sense of hopelessness. After 6 months I was convinced it was my implant and had it taken out , I felt better within a week and haven’t had a panic attack since. It took me a battle with the doctors to have it removed and they said it couldn’t be that causing the aniexty but I genuinely believe it was.
