Experience

When I first got the implant, I bled for 6 weeks. Was put on the pill to regulate it. Had a few normal periods and then they stopped for a year and a half. They become irregular again around the time I had to change it. I’m now on my fifth year and my periods are so irregular. They can last up to two weeks and then a week later, I get another period. For this fact alone I think I will try a coil. No other side effects really but having lots of periods and being more hormonal/PMS-y alone makes it not worth it.
