dont have the money or insurance to have it removed and im scared that it may cause infertility... i do want children one day. i was supposed to have it removed in january of 2014. i have noticed that i am moody and sex drive is horrible since i was supposed to have it removed but didnt think anything about it until reading the reviews and now i kind of worried. some reviews say that its fine to leave it in for another year and some reviews say that it may cause serious damage to the arm and the cervex. not sure whether to go to the hospital and have it removed or just leave it in until i get the money.
What are the effects if you dont remove implanon after 3 years?

I have had my implant in for 10 years haven't had a period in that time and been quite sexually active. It's definitely ran out so I'm worried that I'm now infertile due to it being in so long
Because of how old this thread is i’m not sure if i’ll get a response which is understandable.
But, this is a long stretch but if anyone can help me that would (seriously) calm a lot of my nerves.
So, i’m 24 years old. I got the Nexplanon in my arm in May 2015. It was suppose to be taken out in October 2018. In between those years to now, I have been sexually active pretty… consistently.
When my birth control was still active, at the very beginning of having it i lost a substantial amount of weight, I got really depressed, but most importantly I had my period for almost a year straight like every day & then like 3 months i didn’t have a period and then it was like 6-7 months back to having my period every day. Since my Nexplanon ran out, my periods have sort of gone back to normal, their inconsistent but at least their not every day for long periods of time like when it was active.
But from 2015-now, i never once had a pregnancy scare. Never had a missed period. which is concerning because i’ve been in a relationship for almost 4 years & been sexually active more specifically him finishing inside me every time we have sex. And not once have had a pregnancy scare. My boyfriend is pretty potent, he has kids from previous relationship.
So, with all of that being said, i’m worried that maybe due to me never removing my Nexplanon, it could have maybe made me infertile. I’m not trying to get pregnant, but the fact that i’ve never had one pregnancy scare or anything like that…
I know i’m asking a lot but the more and more that i think about it, the more concerned i get. If anyone can give me insight or help that would be greatly appreciated.
I have had a implant which should have been removed in march,will this affect me becoming pregnant
It has been a year this month since mine had expired. I was hoping to find answers, but would like to share that I had a severe nerve pain in my neck, shoulder and arm just awhile ago. I cried because the pain was just unbearable. My aunt works in the urgent care unit and she highly recommend that I get it removed soon. I no longer want to wait.. this was a wake up call for me. Felt like I was about to have a stoke.
I have read multiple comments stating they do not have the money or insurance to get nexplanon removed. I strongly suggest looking into Planned Parenthood to get it removed and they can also put a new one in or provide what ever method you prefer. If you do not have a planned parenthood around I strongly suggest you research what other local clinics and organizations can help you out. There are options. No one should feel like they have to choose between birth control and surviving financially.
I had my implant in 6 months longer than it should have been I had it taken out that month I fell pregnant
A little worried that you can’t afford to have the nexplanon taken out- but you want children. Do you understand that children cost more money than a 20min doctors visit.. not to mention the responsibility. Make it the appointment- get the thing taken out. Duh #andgetanewoneputin
I had the 3year implant and turned it into 8 yrs until I took it out finally. I felt better all the way around. I am trying to have a baby with my husband but have had no luck. I hope the implant has not damaged me in anyway
I got my implant in novermber 2017 and it was due out 10 months ago , I have put on almost 4 stone in two years , hormones are crazy , I can never sleep properly ( constantly waking up) I have lymphangeoma which is warts under the armpit since November my armpit has got dramatically worse with it spreading up my arm and on my breast .
I have not had a period since may and I’m getting worried , my nearest family planning only works Monday and Thursday and with work struggling to ring up and book an appointment.
I really want a child within the next year and getting very worried that I will not be able to do so,
Please give me all the advise you can :(
Yesterday I went to remove my Implanon. My expiration date was for September of last year. I was nervous because of how long it’s been in after the expiration. Come to find out I have Nexplanon (Implanon was discontinued years ago) and it’s GOOD FOR 5 YEARS. The doctor let me decide whether I’d like to keep it or not.
My nexplanon expired Feb 23 2019, I got it put in Feb 23 2016, so I got the 3 year one which is the one my insurance could cover at the time. I haven’t had insurance to have it removed, I’m very nervous I’m going to get pregnant.
One research told me it can cause your chance of getting prego once it has been removed
I got implanon inserted in May 2015 when my third child was 4 months old. It expired as of May 2018 and I still haven't had it removed. As of right now it's almost a year overdue and my last period was on 02-16-19 I took 3 pregnancy tests this week 2 were positive and one was negative. I am terrified I will miscarry if I do not get it removed. I have a dr appt tomorrow so hopefully they'll remove and confirm if I am pregnant and if everything is okay. I have 3 boys and I also had 2 miscarriages in past this is my 6th time being pregnant and I know for a fact I am bcus I know my body but I'm just terrified that its gonna end in another miscarriage. I am gonna be 30 this year and would like to have 1 more baby before I tie my tubes I hope this birth control doesn't affect that in anyway.
Mine is OOFD by 4 years. There is defiantly hormones still releasing and higher doses at random times, I have experienced hell this last year with it and recently experienced a early miscarriage, I booked into a clinic to have it removed and they couldn't grip on to it as it's too frail. Now I have been referred to have it taken out at a more suitable clinic . I advise anyone who is experienced any problems with it be in date or out of date GET IT REMOVED IMMEDIATELY!! Do not wait !
I have done some research and found out that the implant can work for up to 2 years after the expiration date. I have been trying to get pregnant for about a year now and I found this. I hope it helps all of you out there as it did for me!
