Experience

I’m on my second round of having the implant (it lasts three years) and I’ve found it to be a great option. My periods have stopped, which works for me and I only experienced some irregular bleeding during the last year of my first implant. It’s difficult for me to say whether it impacts my mood or sex drive as I’ve consistently been on hormonal contraception since I was a teenage, however I didn’t notice any obvious changes when I came off the pill and moved onto the implant.
