Experience

My first implant I still had periods every other month. When I changed to the next one after three years my periods stopped completely which I like. Not many negative side effects except a little weight gain and good for anyone who is likely to forget a pill or something that needs changing more often. Little/no change in my skin or hair, slightly more moody.
