Experience

Terrible experience with the implant. Bled for the first 6 months constantly, but foolish me accepted it! My mental health progressively got worse while I had the implant, to the point of intrusive thoughts and debilitating depression. To add insult to injury, the doctor didn’t believe me and didn’t want to remove it!! As soon as it was removed I felt like a cloud had lifted! Had it removed at the end of may and no period yet.
