Experience

had the implant when I was 17 and had it removed when i was 20. I constantly bled for 3 months, went to the doctor she gave me the contraceptive pill yo take along side the implant for 3 months and said if it doesn’t stop after that to come back. so I did what I was told to do.. as soon as the pill ran out it was back to constant bleeding for another month so I went back and then j had to take the pill at the same time for the whole 3 years and it took 11 months after coming off it to get pregnant
