The Impact Of KB Implants Is Not Taken Completely?
Hello, I want to ask you, I am a housewife, I join the family planning program, type of implant, the period of 3 years is only one year I asked to open it because it doesn’t fit,, After four years I feel like I still have only a few implants, My question is, is it dangerous or not, if the implant is not removed, and if it has to be removed, how is it because the health center cannot accept it, please explain, thanks
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Implants are a type of contraceptive that uses hormones by placing a device similar to a small straw that secretes the hormone progesterone when it is attached to the body, generally on the arm. This tool is placed not too deep and usually after installation, you will be asked to feel the implant as a sign that the device is in place and you know where it is.
In your case, there's actually not often a situation where the implant can be left behind, because whether it's inserted, removed, or while the implant is implanted in your body, there's rarely any movement that can cause the implant to fracture.
But if you really feel that way, and the puskesmas doesn't accept it, then your choice is to see a gynecologist, to check whether it's an implant, and if it's an implant, they'll have a tool to remove it. Since these implants are 3 years old, if they are not removed for up to 3 years there should be no problem. But after that you have to take it because after all, the implant is a foreign object to the body. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
