Reading everyones comments I can definitely relate to them.
Im 19 and have had the implant for 8 months and instead of having a period every month it seems to be constant, im lucky if I have 2/3 days where I'm not on. Although this may sound strange my period has not been bloody, more brown in colour, has anyone else had this?
Also I am always extremely stressed and depressed, always crying!! I wondered what was wrong with me, Cry at the most silly things at the moment whereas before I never cried at all.
the weight gain was also a bit of an issue, im on a diet now and i play football 3 times a week trying to shift it but is it true that you cant get rid of the weight whilst on the implant?
I wish I never had it and im definitely going to have it out, especially seeing the news lately about people still getting pregnant whilst on it!!
