Experience

This is my third time having the Implant and has been ideal for me as haven’t had a period. Although now and again will get some blood spotting. The last implant I had was lost in my arm so that wasn’t present and had to get it surgically removed. I’ve noticed I’ve put on some Weight but am not concerned. I have started getting migraine now and again but not sure if linked
