Experience

I got the implant in July 2020, it was ok for a week or 2 but then the bleeding started and it was every day. Due to the bleeding I went to the nurse who inserted the implant to get it removed. This was around October time. She couldn’t find the implant in my arm so referred me to someone else. It has taken nearly a year to get this removed it caused me to bleed everyday for nearly a year my hormones were all over the place and I became so depressed. I had the implant out 2 weeks ago the implant was in the wrong place and deep inside my muscle !! I’m so glad it’s out I feel so much better already.
