Experience

I have used this contraception for a number of years and when I was in my twenties the only side effect I had was acne. But getting older (I am now 32) I have noticed that my mood swings prior to periods and much more unpredictable, I feel heavily emotional and find it difficult to control my emotions in the run up to my period and the my periods used to be very light on the implant and only last for 2 or 3 days. Now they are very dark coloured clotty blood and they last for approximately 14 days
