Experience

I’ve been on the implant for around 3 and a half years now, I haven’t had any major side effects with it. My periods have stopped barring one every now and then. I have put weight on but I don’t think that’s due to the implant, I think that’s more due to eating more and exercising less. I’m more than happy with my implant and I’m planning to keep my second one in for the next two years.
