welcome to the chat
are you still there
Yes I am here
Sadly enough, implanon has been known to go missing
It just migrates and sometimes they can never find it
it is not dangerous, but it means that you may not be protected after the removal date
Although safe for women even if lost, they might not be able to conceive until the device is either located and removed, or until the hormone runs out, which can be up to a few years.
did you see that
you are NOT safe to have unprotected sex with your partner unless you want to get pregnant
Ok well am not thinking of having kids now as I already have two, but my worries is the maybe in the near future I might decide to have one more
well, it may take a little while to get pregnant
that is the only problem
if you want to protect yourself, then you may want to use protection
but if you want to get pregnant, you can have sex now
you just cannot rely on it for birth control now
If you say it can be missing, where can it go and is it a common issue for it to go missing in women.
usually it migrates around the fatty tissue
it may have worked its way out of the skin
anything can really happen
it could have migrated into the torso
The consultant suggested that i go back to my GP to check my hormones
that way they can see if it is still there and continue to look fot it
just remember, this is not DANGEROUS to you at all. it is just inconvenient. :-(
But you are certainly sure that not removing the implanon has no medical implications on my health right?
It will just stop working eventually
Thanks very much doctor my mind is now at rest
you are welcome
did I provide you with excellent service?
Yes very happy with the information received
will check in with you in 2 weeks to see how you are doing
