So far, it’s been a lot of change and it’s not necessarily worth it

Insertion was quick and painless and I haven’t noticed any side effects roughly 9 months in. My period essentially stopped with some occasional bleeding.

Got Nexplanon inserted 3 months after my son was born, and at first it regulated my periods, until they stopped for a few months, then started again, short 3-4 day periods. Now my periods last 20 days. It is always kinda itchy, and it is scheduled to come out in November. I will not be using this birth control again.
