Experience

I found using the implant suited me as I didn’t need to remember to take something each day. The only negative I found whilst using it was that my sex drive was slightly lower. It was a bit daunting having it fitted and removed but you have a local anisthetic so painless really. It did also take some time to fall pregnant after having it removed, however this may not have been a result of using the implant.
