I've had mine for 12 years now and thought it was great but reading here I'm wondering if it's the cause of my depression and lack of va va voom in the bedroom dept. So I'm thinking of having it taken out but no idea what to have instead. From what I've read the implanon has similar side effects, I don't think I can take the pill as I have malabsorption issues so it wouldn't be reliable, not sure about injections.

I did read about the evra patch which seems to not have the depression and loss of libido listed as side effects and wondered if any of you had any experience of it or could suggest any other alternative methods? I'm soo out of the loop cos I've not had to think about this stuff for such a long time blush
