Experience

I got an implant fitted after trying the combined pill, th and the mini pill, and not being suitable for a coil. Procedura to put it in and take it out is simple and painless. Secondary effects were the same as mini pill. Daily spotting and loss of sex drive.

Experience after taking

I’m feeling like me again. Not as tired, happy to do stuff, go out, more social. The fact that I’m no longer bleeding daily has given me a boost. I got the implant removed 5 months ago.

Had a similar experience?
