Experience

I’ve had several implants now, as enjoy the reliability. I get irregular bleeding – spotting which can vary between light/heavy and last anywhere from 2 days to 3 weeks. This gets worse the older the implant is, but taking GP prescribed cerazette on top stops it – now only get 2-3 days every 3 months. Considering I have no other side effects or complications I am willing to put up with it. Works for me!
