Experience

I was on the combined pill before the implant and so far I have only noticed positive changes. I don’t have as much mood swings and feel much more stable and less sensitive. My sex drive has slightly improved and periods have stopped, which I count as a +. It’s wonderful not to have to remember a pill. I have not had any adverse effects on my skin even though I have struggled with acne in the past.
