Experience

I was on the implant for 9 years (3 separate occasions of 3 years each). Was really pleased that my periods weren’t affected and it didn’t affect me in any other ways. The only thing I did notice was shortly after I had each new implant I would have about a month where I felt extremely low and sad but it wouldn’t last and was only ever at the early stages.

Experience after taking

Only been off the implant a short while but no negative side effects since coming off it. My mood has increased slightly and when I had my period i had a bit of back pain and stomach ache whereas I didn’t have that on the implant.

Had a similar experience?
