Experience

To me, this is a perfect solution because I know I’d forget to self administer a pill. The first three months were quite intense in terms of mood swings and my period being irregular as my body was adjusting, but after that I just had spotting and I pretty much leveled out mood wise. I have noticed a loss of sex drive and dryness around a year on since I got it. All the methods have their pros and cons I guess and none are perfect but if you like something you can just put in and know it’s doing its job I would recommend the implant.
