Experience

Had 2 Nexplanons in a row. First time: 9 months no period 1 year regular periods 1 year irregular periods / spotting Second time same but I took it out early because I was in a relationship this time round and the irregular periods were too much. Also started to think it was affecting my PMS and mental health but hard to tell as got it replaced immediately with the Mirena coil.
