Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In implant KB (implant), there is the hormone progesterone which is inserted into a small elastic tube made of plastic material. KB is implanted in the skin and has a long working time.
Because the content is a synthetic hormone, implant birth control can prevent pregnancy, namely by thickening the mucus in the cervix, thinning the lining of the uterus so that it is not ready to accept the result of fertilization, and also preventing ovulation. Because of this effect, implant birth control is quite effective at preventing pregnancy, it can even reach 99%.
However, in addition to all its conveniences and high effectiveness, implant contraception also has side effects, including one of which is causing irregular menstruation. In most cases, what happens is usually less, less frequent menstruation, and some even don't experience menstruation for months. These side effects occur because hormonal balance is disturbed and are generally not a dangerous condition.
Although not dangerous, irregular menstruation like this can cause discomfort for its users, especially when it comes to worshiping worship. For this reason, it is highly recommended for you to check with a gynecologist directly. The doctor will evaluate through a physical examination and ultrasound the possibility of other diseases that can cause menstrual disorders as you are experiencing, such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, polyps, myomas, and so on. If needed, your doctor may also recommend that you switch to another method of contraception.
In general, in Islam, bleeding from the birth canal that comes out too often outside the menstrual cycle can be considered as not part of menstrual blood (istihada blood). However, for more details, with regard to determining whether the blood is still included in menstrual blood which prevents your fasting or not, we recommend that you consult directly with your religious leaders (ulama).
I hope this helps.
