Experience

It’s convenient having a contraception that I don’t have to remember about for three years, when it expires and will need removing/changing. I haven’t had many physical symptoms from this, except that I am on my period very irregularly. I can be on for every other week and then not at all for 5 weeks, which can be stressful and expensive. I think it’s made my mood a bit more volatile yet it’s hard to tell as when I first got the implant I was on another medication which did this too.
