How to get pregnant on the implant

It is not known if IMPLANON is as effective in very overweight women because clinical studies did not include many overweight women. The following chart shows the chance of getting pregnant for women who use different methods of birth control. Talk to your health care provider about using IMPLANON if you have diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, headaches, gallbladder or kidney problems, history of depressed mood, high blood pressure, allergy to numbing medicines (anesthetics) or medicines used to clean your skin (antiseptics). Immediately after the IMPLANON implant has been placed, you and your health care provider should check that the implant is in your arm by feeling for it.
If you become pregnant while using IMPLANON, you have a slightly higher chance that the pregnancy will be ectopic (occurring outside the womb) than do women who do not use birth control. The use of IMPLANON may also increase your chance of serious blood clots, especially if you have other risk factors, such as smoking. Cysts may develop on the ovaries and usually go away without treatment but sometimes surgery is needed to remove them.
IMPLANON does not protect against HIV infection (the virus that causes AIDS) or other sexually transmitted diseases.

Each box on the chart contains a list of birth control methods that are similar in effectiveness.
If you and your health care provider cannot feel the IMPLANON implant, use a non-hormonal birth control method (such as condoms) until your health care provider confirms that the implant is in place. In studies, about one out of ten women stopped using the implant because of an unfavorable change in their bleeding pattern. In rare cases, implants have been reported to be found in a blood vessel, including a blood vessel in the lung. You may need special tests to check that the implant is in place or to help find the implant when it is time to take it out.
Removal of the implant may be very difficult or impossible if the implant is not where it should be. Call your health care provider right way if you think you are pregnant or have unexplained lower stomach (abdominal) pain.
Special procedures, including surgery in the hospital, may be needed to remove the implant.

If the implant is not removed, then the effects of IMPLANON will continue for a longer period of time. Tell your doctor at least 4 weeks before if you are going to have surgery or will need to be on bed rest, because you have an increased chance of getting blood clots during surgery or bed rest. Other problems related to insertion and removal include pain, irritation, swelling, bruising, scarring, infection, injury to the nerves or blood vessels, and breaking of the implant.
Use a back up birth control method and call your health care provider right away if the implant comes out.
