    Nexplanon BEST birth control EVER!! You definitely won't be having any kids with this thing! Thank you Nexplanon for taking away my complete desire to have sex. Wasting all my money on tampons because Aunt Flow is here to stay. Oh, and ruining my relationship.. Also don't touch me don't talk to me or you might get slapped. Guess it's doing its job..

I tried two different meds to balance my hormones but they do not fully work. I had no libido at first I am breaking out like I just started puberty and my anger is 10x what it should be.
