Experience

I’ve been on the implant for around a year and two months. I was prescribed birth control pills for a while when being on the implant to stop the bleeding. It didn’t work and the mood swings were crazy when on the pill with the implant still in my arm. I’m over it and thinking about just getting the implant removed at this point.
