Experience

I had 2 implants (6 years) with no issues at all, periods stopped completely, insertion was painless. Had it replaced for a 3rd implant and 1 year in I started having random periods and bleeding, so had it removed. Went back to it a couple of years later, and it was hell. Bled randomly, sometimes for weeks at a time. Clinic gave me progesterone only pill to control bleeding, which gave me huge variances in mood, I was pretty miserable. Lasted for around 18 months before I had it removed, I couldn’t take the symptoms any longer!
