Experience

I got the implant on the advice of my GP and suffered near constant bleeding for the few months I was using it. It was so bad I had to begin taking the pill on top of the implant to try and stop the bleeding. This negatively affected my health as my iron levels dropped and my mental health as I had no sex drive and felt very emotional for the time I was using this method
