Experience

It’s a weird one, didn’t gain any weight and touch wood so far haven’t broken out badly which I thought I would have as I’ve had pretty bad acne in the past. The mini pill gave me severe acne so I had to try the implant. I think my moods are all over the place well they were for the first few months for sure. Going to persevere and see if it settles as in my opinion it’s much better than the mini pill.
