Experience

I’ve been on the implant since the NHS stopped providing Microgyn tablets. I am on my third implant and honestly it’s the best thing I ever did. I only have about 3 periods a year and you can tell when it is coming on due to tender breasts before hand but other than that I’ve had no issues at all. I don’t need to remember to take tablets and it has taken my period cramps away. Everyone has a different reaction to contraception so please don’t allow other negative reviews to cloud your judgement.
