Experience

So handy not having to worry for three years. Simple non invasive procedure to have put in and replaced after the 3 years. Liked not having periods, but having had one for 8 years i do worry if it’s “healthy”. Had the implant out for 18 months and still don’t have regular periods, but couldn’t be sure if this is coincidence.
