Experience

I have definitely noticed I cry a lot more now I’m on the implant. Not crazy amounts and never randomly in public, but if I’m feeling emotional I will cry, where before I wouldn’t. But its not enough to put me off. I experience hair loss when I first got it implanted but that settled after a few months. I have polycystic ovaries (not diagnosed PCOS because I dont have enough symptoms) but the implant hasn’t had a negative effect on it. If anything it’s made my periods more regular. Regularly every 3 months but at least it’s something. What I like is that once I put it in i dont have to worry about it for 3 years.
