Experience

I had my first implant fitted and I didn’t get a period for a year. I was happy I was able to forget about taking tablets everyday and if I was sick I was still protected. I got my second one fitted and I had to get it removed after a year of having it in as I suffered from really bad mental health. Looking back I think the implant had affected my mental health for longer. I was on the implant for 5 years and now have the patch which I’m much happier with.
