Experience

Insertion was fine under local anaesthetic. Migraines almost every day after insertion, but doctor didn’t want to remove it until at least 3 months of use to “see if they get better” (they didn’t).

Experience after taking

Stopping was a relief. Migraines never went back to normal. Always since then I’ve had more migraines than pre-implant, but fewer than while I had it in.

Had a similar experience?
