Experience

I’ve had the implant before and it was totally fine – this time not so much! Have had what feels like a constant period for 5 months. It gets heavier and incredibly painful during the ‘official’ period and then is light and relatively pain free but still uncomfortable for most of the time around my period. Sex drive has plummeted (plus, all sex is period sex now). But mental health hasn’t been effected which is a plus.
