Experience

I am on my 3rd implant and my 7th year of having implants. For the first one I lost my period and I was more irritable, I had light spotting for 6 months before it was changed. For the second my period stopped for the first year and then light but regular periods. Now I’m on the 3rd implant I have two light periods a month usually but they are pretty irregular and I’ve started getting hormonal spots on my chin (never had those before). They also changed the position of it in my arm this time, but still the same arm.
