Experience

I have had the implant for 4 months now and my skin around the chin and neck is full of spots and bad texture. The first month I was getting headaches and migraines about 3x a week, fortunately those passed. Currently, I feel like a dull version of myself, nothing makes me laugh. My period has stopped, I went from a progesterone only pill straight onto this and only had spotting twice so far, so that’s one positive! It’s also nice not to have to think about it. However the bad moods, headaches, and acne, are enough for me so I’ve booked to get it removed.
