Experience

I had the implant for 2 years it ran out and had it taken out- no issues at all. Then went to the patch loved it but became a nuisance to keep reapplying every week. Got another implant- I had an AWFUL experience I was in so much pain I could barely walk and I felt so sick. In that much pain to the point the drs thought I had endometriosis and I had to undergo surgery to diagnose endometriosis and took out the implant at the same time- I didn’t have endometriosis but since the implant was taken out Ive been absolutely fine
