Overall I would highly recommend the implant for anyone looking for an effective and low maintenance birth control. I've recently had it refitted as a result of liking it so much! As someone who struggles with anxiety which is greatly effected by my hormones this has been great at regulating them and has largely cleared the side effects I get when on my period. The only negative thing I can say about it is that I now have irregular periods (1 every 3-4 months) but it's really not a big deal to me due to the implants high effectiveness. I would however recommend trying a non-oestrogen birth control pill before getting it, as I did this before getting it fitted to try and see what my mental health was like on the hormones. If you're good with the pills, you're most likely going to be good with the implant. Insertion is absolutely painless passed the aesthetic, although removal feels uncomfortable. But for 3 years of no stress it is absolutely worth it!
