Experience

I had the implant previously and had no problems with it, however after having my son I chose it again and I’ve had nothing but problems. Periods very irregular, 3 heavy in one month, gained a lot of weight but mostly the negative effect on My mood. Increased anxiety and very very low mood at certain points in the month and total loss of Sex drive . My other half has now had a vasectomy so I can have this removed.
