Experience

Much lighter periods and more infrequent – on average probably three days of light bleeding every 5-6 months. Game changer for someone with heavy, painful periods! Have recommended it to many friends and won’t shut up about it. Only thing is to make sure you’re a tiny bit careful with your arm where the implant is – don’t want it breaking. But it puts up with a hell of a lot of stress and movement!
