Couldn't find what you looking for?


I have had implanon for about 6 months now. My mood swing hit me everyday on minute I'm happy and smiling and the next I'm cry and feeling like c**p. Is the normal? The nausea is like I'm pregnant all over again. My cycle has completely stopped. So is this all normal?
