Experience

I have noticed very few side effects from the implant. It has made my periods more frequent but also lighter, and I like the fact that I don’t have to worry about replacing it. Having it fitted was not too painful and there were no complications. My second implant is fitted much closer to the skin than the first, which sometimes makes me worry that I could catch it when scratching, which is painful
