Experience

Got the implant fitted December 2020 after coming off the depo injection, it was okay for the first 3 weeks but then the bleeding started and became an issue I was bleeding 1-2 months at a time. Due to this I lasted till June 2021 where I then asked to get it removed, I had to wait a month to get an appointment to get it out, it’s been out 6 days today and I’m feeling so much better already!
