Experience

I have had two implants, however I am getting mine removed a years early later this month as I am completely fed up! I thought it had been great, no real side effects however I have completely lost my sex drive which has impacted my relationship. Also vaginally dryness, I can’t wait to be free of it! Whilst it works for many, I definitely wouldn’t consider having it again!
