Experience

I have had my implant for 2.5 years and love it. The small side effects (tender breasts, sweating) are way more manageable than the headaches I experienced with the pill. I didn’t have any periods for the first 2 years but now I have irregular light periods every few months. I love not having to think or worry about contraception.
