Hello Mrs. Rizky,
Left behind implant birth control on the skin is actually not a condition to worry about. Usually, if it is feared that it will cause great discomfort and injury, for example if it is too deep, etc., the implant does not need to be removed immediately. But if pregnancy occurs, and the implant is still active, it will need to be removed.
Pregnancy is a contraindication to the use of any type of birth control, therefore it is better if the implant is removed, especially if it is still active because it can release the progestin hormone, which is feared to interfere with pregnancy, especially in the early trimester.
It is best if you consult your obstetrician for the next steps, whether or not you need to revoke this family planning and how to do it.
