The Dangers Of A Detached Birth Control Implant?
Good evening, I want to ask about the birth control implant I just installed it in January and last week the other implant was removed so there is only 1 left. Is it still working?
Hi Rani, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Birth control implants are one of the options for contraception by preventing ovulation so that fertilization cannot occur. In addition, the hormone contained in the implant makes the mucus in the cervix (cervix) thicker, preventing sperm from entering the uterus.
The effectiveness of KB implants is very good, with a note that their use is as recommended and in the correct position and dose. Its effectiveness will decrease if:
1. Used in conjunction with certain drugs such as certain antibiotics
2. Position not suitable
3. Dosage is not appropriate
4. Past the deadline
If one of the implants is pulled out, then the position is not correct and the dose is not appropriate. We recommend that you consult this matter with your doctor for the need for re-implantation or other family planning options. For the time being (before going to the doctor), abstinence (not having sex), coitus interruptus (removing sperm outside the vagina) can be used to prevent pregnancy, or use other contraceptives such as condoms.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
