Experience

I got the implant so I wouldn’t have to remember to take a pill everyday, but the side effects were way worse than when I was on the pill. I had terrible mood swings and lots of cramps, so I only stayed on the pill for a few months. My doctor had told me that she saw an increase in women wanting to get their implants removed so I’m not sure what was going on with it.
