It was good for the first implant but then when my second one was fitted I bled for almost a whole year and became very exhausted

It was my first time on contraception, I was afraid to forget the pill and had the feeling that the implant had less hormones in it. My mood was very fluctuating for the first 4-6 months but then settled. My period was much lighter at the beginning and not painful for the first few months, then actually got irregular after 7-8 months (only a few days, then nothing for 2 weeks, then 3 weeks long period...) The insertion of the implant was very easy and not too painful, been able to feel it since the beginning.

Originally had it for 6 years no problem then told to come off as was diagnosed with hypermobility (HSD) 2018, then new info says it can help hsd joint pain flare ups. Currently waiting for it to settle, nauseous and sore but remaining hopeful that it will help!
