Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you have not removed contraceptive implant the you will not face any problem in your health.The only problem you may have is if you do unprotected sex then the implant will not be effective.Once you find it convenient please get removed by the doctor.
Thanks

Hello, About 3years ago I got Mirena inserted and all was fine and working properly for about 2 years. My body then expelled it. We replaced it with another one and it was expelled once again (along with 3 months of continuous bleeding and severe cramps). Looking for a long term birth control I decided to get Nexplanon because of the issues with Mirena. I continued to have continuous bleeding for 3-4 months and it was beginning to affect my everyday life. I was tired, moody and constantly in pain. I asked to have it removed and they put me on birth control pills for 3 months in addition to the nexplanon to regulate my cycle. By the end of the three months it was back to normal. I have now been off the pill for 3-4 months and I ve currently been bleeding for 4 1/2 weeks. I have two questions: Based on my history is it best to get the nexplanon removed? I feel as though my body is rejecting it. Would it be safe to take the pill every day for a log period of time in addition to the nexplanon? I am worried that it may have too many hormones when taken together that may cause long term issues.

Hi.I am taking an oral contraceptive and I took my pill 3.5 hours later than normal due to a stomach flu and had unprotected sex the following day. Prior to this I have been quite regular with my pills, only being an hour late if at all. I bled just a bit after sex... could that mean it was implantation??

Hiii, I had unprotected sex on oct28 and took the morning after pill , then had sex again on Nov1 and took the pill again. Had a light bleeding three to four days later. Thinking it was implantation bleeding I had a pregnancy test after the blood stopped but cane it negative. I m 10 days late for my period ,pls whats going on cos I m paranoid.

I have a problem that is not resolving. I have right eye ptososis, strabismus, the eye no longer moves to the left and lately constant weeping/tearing from the eye. In the cavernous sinus, I have greater ectasia on the right vs left carotid on MRI and a vascular blush on a cerebral angiogram, suggestive of inflammation, tumor or fistula. Currently, there is no identified aneurysm, no inflammation or infection in CSF or blood, no identified fistula, and no tumor on MRI. High dose steroids are not resolving the problem. What other things could be assessed/examined?
