Experience

Quick and easy once every 3 months injection Didn’t have to remember to take the pill. Very little effect to my mood unlike my experience with the inplant. Very easy and will take again Come off 1 month ago and no period returned yet. Will be TTC later this year

Experience after taking

No period returned yet after 1 month of no longer using. Very tender breasts and swollen breasts Unsure of weight as covid means I’ve put on weight but feel injection may have increased my appetitie. Definitely feel more hormonal now off injection
