Experience

The main side effect I experienced was a continuous, very light period. After 30-40 days it stops for 1-2 weeks, however the majority of the 7 months I have had the implant there has been some sort of bleeding from barely there to a light period. Sometimes light cramps accompany the heaviest bleeding (still relatively light bleeding). There is no pattern to my period. My sex drive has also decreased, although not dramatically.
