Experience

I found the implant fine for a year, and in the last six months my periods have been really heavy and lasting about 2 weeks each time, with only 2 weeks off. My skin is the worse it’s ever been. I’m now getting the implant removed and moving onto the combined pill but have had to wait a long time bc of Covid.
