Experience

I’ve loved the implant. Before I went on it, I had the worst pre period and start of period symptoms, they were heavy, I had the worst cramps, I also had aches and sweats like you do with the flu, used to be so bad I couldn’t go to school or work. Since I’ve been on the implant I’ve had none of this. In four years I’ve had one period and that was at the end of my first implant but it was very light. Would recommend trying the progesterone only pill before the implant which is what I did to see if it would suit me
