Experience

Implant was absolute bliss for the first year, I had it implanted in my first year of University so the lack of periods and ease of contraception was fantastic. Fast forward to the third year, I was bleeding every other week, had terrible mood swings and felt down CONSTANTLY. Have heard this from multiple women I know, no one seems to be safe.
