Had this implant for nearly 12 months as soon as I got it put in my moods changed I would become angry and very depressed and would cry everyday, It has got to the point where its really had a big impact on my social life and relationships with people I can not control my temper on this birth control I feel so sorry for my family and friends having to put up with my bad moods everyday, I have all so got all spots around my face before this got put in my skin was perfect very clear with no acne or spots, the headaches are so bad I feel very nauseous and feel like I wanna vomit all the time the doctors are just giving me a hard time at the minute with removing it saying I dont know when we will see you face to face for a appointment due to the Covid 19 situation going on on this birth control method my periods would last 4 months which is very inconvenient and very annoying for me them I get no periods for 3 months the periods are very abnormal I get spotting between my periods to its been a emotional roller coaster for me this past year for me I am debating to get this horrible trash out my arm Im so over it now I just want my appointment I feel like taking it out myself but I wouldn’t recommend doing it its dangerous without local anaesthetic in your arm do not try taking it out your self Im stuck with it at the minute just have to deal with the side effects till the doctor can see me face to face again and be patient thats all i can do.
