Thanks for writing to us.
Implanon birth control is an effective implant with a high efficacy. It can cause pain in lower abdomen in case of pelvic inflammation. Mild episodes of irregular bleeding are also noted in initial days. In case the symptoms are persistent, you need to consult her gynecologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
