Experience

I’ve been using this form of contraceptive since I was a teenager and have found it very good – no side effects from what I can tell but I didn’t use any other form of contraceptive other than condoms before this. I found it lightened my periods as they were very heavy and painful beforehand. The implants that I’ve had have been three-year cycle implants. The insertion and extraction process is fairly simple and although it is not pain free, it was more discomfort with some bruising.
