Experience

For the first 6 months I bled rather heavily for pretty much the entire time, which in turn made me feel very lethargic and fatigued. I would say that my moods can change but not necessarily dramatically. I have continued with the implant due to the fact that I am not allowed certain pills due to suffering from migraines and also because when I had the pill before I always forgot and I didn't want to risk it. I am currently looking into other contraception and I am due to have the implant extracted at the beginning of January 2020. I liked the reliability and this was the only reason I continued using.
