Experience

Went 8 years of back and forth to the doctor with mugraines. Had all kinds of scans and tests and they all came back clear. Have really low blood pressure and I faint whenever I stand up too fast. Cant believe it has taken me this long to understand that the reason is the implant. Severe mood swings, sometimes I dont feel like myself at all. Complete loss of sex drive which is ruining my relationship and if that werent bad enough I get recurrent thrush which is a nightmare. Terrible form of conteaception. The only upside to all of this is the fact that its kept me from getting pregnant. 1/10
