    I'm currently on the pill but I want to go on the implant as I don't have to remember it everyday and worry about it for another 3 years, i've heard so much horror stories about the side effects and have finally decided that I just want to try it and book to take it out if it's not for me.

    I have found a clinic/ hospital i want to get it done at as i feel uncomfortable going to GP as they've known my family for years. the opening times is 3-7pm 2 days a week I think, I don't know whether I can drop in or phone ahead of time.

    also i'm kinda nervous as to what to say, I'm not sexually active, so scared of the question but i want to be prepared for when i am, so I'm ready in every possible way and i have gotten used to the hormones. Am i allowed to just go on the implant because i want to.

    how can i prepare for this and also what can i expect from the appointment?

    i'm thinking of calling them today, as after today it's closed for until next week.

    Many GPs don't offer the implant and it's often done at a family planning or sexual health clinic anyway.

    Clinics vary as to whether or not you need an appointment - the NHS website should say.
