I have had my contraceptive implant in for almost 3 years now. After having it for 18 months or so I chose to get it remove as it was causing me a few problems, such as acne and extremely frequent peirods.
When I went to have it removed, the doctor was unable to locate it. So I was sent for an ultrasounds, which was confirm that it was in embedded in to my muscle. After this I was sent again for another to check it was in the muscle and whether it could be removed there and then. It was confirmed it was in the muscle but it was too close to some nerves so he was unable to remove it there and then. I was then referred to the hospital to get it removed under general anesthesia. They did another ultrasound when I was under and he explained he couldn’t see it but decided to continue with the procedure but still couldn’t locate it. I am now told I need an mri scan to find it, I’m just worried where it may have travel too? How long the hormones last? The health risk it may cause? And If anyone has experienced anything similar?
