Experience

I use the implant as I like the fact that it stops periods however this second time of having it I seem to get a period every 3-6 months and these can be quite bad. With my first implant I didn’t experience this at all. I sometimes also get ovulation pains which can be worse than period pains! I’ve never been able to loose much weight while on the implant either so I think it encourages cravings etc. I haven’t experienced any sickness or headaches or acne sort of symptoms whilst on the implant. I would recommend it however I know it reacts differently in different people I have friends who have bled the whole time they’ve had it. It’s a great option if your in a long term relationship and like me would forget to take a pill every day!
