Experience

Irregular periods in my second implant, they last longer and a lot of light bleeding between periods. Overall sex drive decreased with my first implant and is still lower than it was now I’m on my second implant. Having the implant inserted wasnt good the first time due to the nurse putting it in at a funny angle, it took a few weeks to stop pinching against my skin. The second implant I had inserted was fine.
