Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
A few days past your 3 year XXXXXXX is not a cause of worry.
However, Implanon cannot be left indefinitely inside your body.
Quoting from the Implanon site itself - XXXXXXX Failure to remove the implant may result in continued effects of etonogestrel, such as compromised fertility, ectopic pregnancy, or persistence or occurrence of a drug-related adverse event. XXXXXXX
Hence, if the approval is going to take too long for more than a month from the time crossed 3 years, I would recommend you to get it removed.
Take care.
