Experience

First year was heaven – no periods!! After that it was a nightmare. Bled continuously, constantly crying and being over emotional. I was having to take pills continuously alongside the implant because of the bleeding and in the end they took it out and fitted a mirena instead. I recommend going straight for the mirena.
