Experience

Ever since getting the implant i was blessed with no periods. I maybe get spotting once or twice a year but that’s it. My mood swings are no where near what they used to be like. I have PCOS so its hard to give accurate statements about weight and body hair but i’d be reluctant to ever get the implant out!
