Experience

I like the knowledge of knowing I can’t not use it correctly. If it’s changed on time I’m covered. However, this is my second nexplanon and when I got it changed it was HORRIFIC. I was bruised for 4 weeks. It was just an awful experience and I’m terrified of getting it done again. Equally whenever I’m stressed I get breakthrough bleeding like reliably.. Change jobs.. Bleeding.. Exam time.. Bleeding.. Depressed.. Yey! bleeding. My ob/gyn friend tells me this is because cortisol the stress hormone is similar to oestrogen and can effect your cycle. I don’t think I’m gonna get another. Might just die with this one still I my arm…
