The Impact That Occurs When The Implant KB Stem Is Broken?
Hello. The story is that I put an implant into the patient. Because the tool is new and a bit problematic, at the time of installation there will be a broken implant. The broken part is about 1/4 in the tool, while the rest is already in. Is it okay for that patient? Is there a possibility that the implant will not work optimally / the chance of getting pregnant is higher? Thank you
Hello Elsa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Implanted FP is a small rod containing the hormone progesterone. When implanted under the skin, this birth control will release the hormone in it slowly. This family planning can last for 3 years and its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy will be reduced if used for more than 3 years.
If the stem is partially broken, it is unlikely that there will be certain side effects, but it is likely that the effectiveness of family planning will decrease before the 3 year period. Neither you nor your patient will be able to predict when the implant's effects will wear off, so when the contraceptive effect wears off, your patient can become pregnant. Therefore, you should remove the broken implant and replace it with a new implant.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
