A good few months ago I got Implanon inserted into my arm as a method of birth control. The past few months I have had quite bad acne on my face and I have been taking Roaccutane to try sort it out as nothing else seems to work with me. When I got prescribed the Roaccutane I was instructed to take 'co-cyprindiol' birth control along with it to help level out my hormone levels etc. Is this safe to take whilst I have the Implanon implant ? I am a little worried they might blank each other out. I would rather not land pregnant !
