Experience

I had this implant fitted a few weeks after giving birth. Hard to tell which side effects were connected to giving birth and breastfeeding but I had three weeks of heavy bleeding after a year of the implant (GP said this may have been stopping breastfeeding instead) and recurrent cystitis and severe dryness for the first few months – I didn’t have this after my second child but it was a different birth. So it’s hard to separate the symptoms! I haven’t tried it again.
