Experience

I had been on contraception for 10 years, my first was the implant and that was brilliant until the second one, then it caused lots of irregular periods and spotting. I then went onto regividon and it made me so emotional and depressed. I then after a year of that went onto the desomono and again, especially before my period was due (even tho I didn’t get one) I was so depressed and anxious. I’ve been off contraception now for a year and I am a different person.
