I’ve had an implant for 2 years..I am trying to fit in with this KB..thun ahead of the plan I want to install the implant again. Can you immediately install it after you remove it? Do you have to wait for the wound on the arm to dry first?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Implantable birth control is an option for women who want to delay or regulate pregnancy spacing due to its ease of use. In contrast to injectable contraceptives, which require users to control every few months, implant contraceptive users can minimize this control schedule to only once or 2 years.
In birth control implants contain synthetic progesterone hormone which is inserted into a small elastic tube which is then implanted into the skin (usually in the upper arm). In this way, the hormones are gradually released into the bloodstream and inhibit ovulation (the rupture of a mature egg), making cervical mucus thicker, and the uterine wall not ready for fertilization. With proper use, implant birth control can be up to 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.
As for your question, you should consult directly with a doctor or gynecologist. Because, each type of birth control can have indications and contraindications for use of each. KB is not suitable for you to use if you have diabetes, liver problems, migraines, osteoporosis, blood clotting disorders, or also suffer from cancer whose growth is influenced by the hormone progesterone (including breast cancer). Before determining what birth control is suitable for you, your doctor needs to first check your overall health condition. If it is true that you are the right candidate to use implant birth control, then KB can be put back on without having to wait for the wound on your arm to dry first.
Hope it helps ..
