Experience

Black stringy irrelgular discharge. Never normal periods, bled for 6 months straight. I have tried every other contraception – the pill affected my mood, the implant not as much. Had the same irregular bleeding with the injection as well. Really don’t know where to go from here. Had womb scans and they said there is nothing they can do.
