Experience

I have tried a number of combined and mini-pills before and had terrible side effects. i switched to implant ~4 years ago, so i’m now on my 2nd implant (each last 3 years). procedure is fine, give a general anesthetic and it’s quite quick. I like that it’s easy to use and nothing to think about for a few years. Periods completely stopped (but they did on pill as well), breasts super tender after my first one, couldn’t stand them being touched. Also get a lot of night sweats that seems to coincide with the time i’ve been on implant.
