Experience

A contraceptive that lasts 3 years at a time…yes please! I had my first implant inserted into my arm at the age of 17 and I’m now 27 and on my 4th implant. I love it as I have moved and lived all over the world and having my contraception sorted and not having to think about it 3 years at a time is incredible for me. The only issue I ever had is irregular periods but they are not heavy and having a few extra panty liners in my handbags is no problem. It is worry free contraception for me and doesn’t affect my mood greatly, just the usual PMS symptoms on my period. I have always encouraged my friends to get the implant as 3 years of no worries is amazing.
