hi there
am dr.surendiran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
yes it is possible to get pregnant despite implanon ,Hundreds become pregnant despite contraceptive implant Implanon
Complaints about scarring, incorrect fitting, device failure and other problems were also made to medical regulators about the matchstick-sized tubes filled with synthetic hormone that are fitted into women's upper arms by health professionals
The basis for successful use of Implanon is a correct and carefully performed subdermal insertion of the implant in accordance with the product instructions. If the implant is not inserted in accordance with the instructions and on the correct day, this may result in an unintended pregnancy. In addition, no contraceptive is 100% effective.
check your status of pregnancy by HCG card test,and proceed further
hope helped your query
regards dr.surendiran
