I'm due to get my implanon out December 23rd, would it be okay if I waited until December 1st or 2nd? I don't get back on my insurance until the 1st. But I'm not sure how bad the side effect would be, if any. It's been in for 3 years
Hi just a girl, & welcome to the site. It doesn't matter when you get it taken out if it's been 3 years it needs to come out, & be replaced at the same time if you are going to use the same form of birth control. I did not see anything about side effects other than if you don't get another one , or use some other form of birth control you may get pregnant very quickly like within a few days. Read below, & best of wishes to you...
the Implanon implant must be removed by the end of the third year after it was inserted and may be replaced at that time with a new implant. If you choose not to replace the implant, your ability to get pregnant will return quickly. Some women have become pregnant within the first week after removal of an Implanon implant. Start using another form of birth control right away if you wish to avoid an unintended pregnancy.
I'm confused. If you meant November 23 to get it out, then the only problem would be it may not be protecting you after that. You would need to use another method of birth control. You can wait a little while to get it removed.
