Experience

The time in between periods could be 2-3 nots sometimes and this was great (no pain or spotting) but when periods came they were normally heavy, painful and lasted ages, so eventually gave up after my friends got fed up of me complaining.

Experience after taking

This is what I noticed in the gap between my implant coming out and ius going in so only lasted about a week. It was fine in comparison to what I’d had while using the implant.

Had a similar experience?
