I got this to have birth control I didn't need to think about. The insertion process was VERY fast... maybe five minutes? They numbed the area with a lidocaine shot, and injected the implant... after, they placed a compression bandage and strips over it, and told me I could take ibuprofen if I needed. I actually didn't bother... it did hurt, but it was more a dull ache throughout my upper ... Show Full Comment

I want to cry or scream at people. I decided to look into reviews of other ... Show Full Comment

Additionally, within the ... Show Full Comment
