Experience

Suited me perfectly. Been using it for 3 years, in the space of getting it replaced. Regulated my irregular period and made it lighter. Only increased side effect was tender breasts which for me isn’t an issue. No other major negative noticeable changes.

Experience after taking

No noticeable changes after coming off. Had one cycle since and symptoms are the same as when I was on the implant.

Had a similar experience?
