Experience

Was perfect libido-wise, but i put on weight and noticed hair loss. The main issue, however, was the constant bleeding. I bled for over two months at a time and this I’ve heard is extremely common.

Experience after taking

After i stopped using nexplanon my constant vaginal bleeding stopped and my weight gain and hair loss both rectified themselves.
