I understand your stress
. However there is actually very little chance of pregnancy
The failure rate of Implanon
is less than 1 in 1000 women after 3 year, meaning that if 1000 women use it for three year one pregnancy may result.
If the time since insertion of Implanon is less than 2 1/2 years and your girlfriend is not obese
, the hormone released is in sufficient amounts from Implanon to protect against pregnancy.
So there is no need to stress out. Also pregnancy can be tested at home, using a home urine pregnancy kit that is freely available everywhere and gives result in five minutes and does not require any special expertise to do. This can be done so that there is no need to undergo the stress of waiting.
So, do a Urine teat if possible and don't worry at all.
Thanks for the query and for using HCM. Have a good day.
