Have you got an implant or had it in the past? What was/is your experience like?
I have been on the implant for almost 6 years I’m meant to be putting my third one in April but debating to completely come off it and give my body a break.


My experience:
Main side effect is definitely acne as I’m 23 now and still suffer from bad skin. Another one mood swings! I have suffered with anxiety and depression and wonder if the implant might be the cause.

I've not had it but friends have had it and not liked it.

What would you be swapping it for? Or nothing at all?

I was on the pill for contraception in a previous relationship, but I'm now in a same sex relationship so obviously don't need it - but stayed on it for a while due to it helping with lighter periods. I spoke to the doctor and he said that now I'm in my 20s, my periods will likely be lighter than when I was a teenager anyway so just to come off it and see. That was like 2 or 3 years ago and they're fine
