I've not been feeling right since having it fitted. I have a history of mental health problems so not sure if it is caused by the implant or it's just me.
Anyone else had problems whilst on it? Did you get it removed?

I had this fitted 8 weeks after the birth of my son. He's is a difficult baby (cries a lot, feeding issues and no sleep) but I felt so much worse after I had this. The main feeling I had was anger- sometimes towards my son and I cried multiple times a day. After 6 weeks I had it removed. Dr really didn't want to and told me I probably had PND! I insisted and feel lots better now.
