Implanon removal

Patient

Q:

Doctor

A:   I understand that you might be concerned about your implant removal in the next 3 years. However let me reassure you that it would most likely be easily removed and without any complications.
Certainly you will probably bleed approximately the volume of a teaspoon but that shouldn’t affect your overall health.  Only a small percentage of patients showed difficulty to remove their implants during the trials of this medication, but that didn’t interfere with their health. If you are not sure about Implanon, I would suggest you to talk to your gynecologist for more information on other contraceptive methods. I wish you the best.
