Experience

Overall, this worked really well for me! I had one super heavy period after having it implanted and I haven’t had a period since – it’s been 2.5 years. The main side effect was vaginal dryness which wasn’t ideal but I managed. Not having a period for so long was amazing but I understand it may be unsettling for some people. Apparently having the implanon removed can be quite painful! But I’m not there yet.
