Experience

I have had such a positive experience with the implant! Before deciding to get it I only ever saw negative reviews and horror stories about the side effects some experienced and was almost put off entirely. I now feel so glad I took the plunge and got it anyway! And I feel I should tell my positive experience where I can. My periods completely stopped, I didn’t have to worry about forgetting to take the pill and experienced no serious side effects. The only downside for me was some uncomfortable bloating and weight gain which I struggled with to begin with, but it did settle down. All round great experience for me would definitely recommend!!
