HCG diet with implanon implant

Hi. I am wanting to start the HCG diet but I have the Implanon implant and I know that some prescriptions and medicines can counteract some birth controls so I was just wondering if the HCG drops would mess with my birth control or if it is still pretty safe to do.

implanon is a single-rod long acting reversible hormonal contraceptive subdermal implant that is inserted just under the skin of a woman's upper arm.

it is safe to do.

Hello.
Thanks for your query.
It is safe to start with hcg drops with Implanon implants. You need not worry about the effect of contraceptive.There are no known interactions between the two.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
Regards

I am 34 yr old.1 week S/p right salpingectomy for 6wk ectopic, beta hcg 5000 presummably caused by copper iud failure. Bleeding stopped yesterday. I am now having odd tingling sensation on right side. Same sensation is faint on left side as well. My question is, is it possible to be close to ovulation 7 days after surgery? Is it normal to have more sensation with ovulation after salpingectomy or miscarriage? I understand mittelschmerz can be felt on right side more often even when left ovary ovulates. Also, is it necessary to do repeat beta hcg post salpingectomy for ectopic? Thank you for your help.
