Experience

I’ve had 4 implants and I’ve had a completely different experience with each one I’ve had. The most recent really affected my skin, the acne was just awful, especially around my chin! My mood dipped and I was constantly feeling the need to cry so decided to try something else that would improve this. My first implant I had no periods for a year, my second implant I was bleeding for months on end, my this implant was fine just irregular bleeding and a bit of acne and this one really caused awful acne with mood swings. I do really like the ease of the implant but it’ll be a unique experience for the person and when you get it re-newed don’t worry if you experience it differently.
