Implant removal during covid


#1

Hello, I’ve got the implant and have done for just over 2 years. It causes me a lot of issues but also me and my partner want to try for a baby. I had an appointment to have it removed but with the pandemic it got cancelled. Is there anywhere I can go to have to removed or is it a case of having to wait until this is over?
Thank you

Hello @Georgia_Nicole_Hill

At SH:24 we seem to be liasing with clinics all over the country as they send their service users to us. They all seem to have different strategies but most services are operating telephone consultations so that they can assess people’s problems and explain what is currently available.

So, I would book one of those appointments by calling your local sexual health service and find out what their policy is.

Hope helpful,
Paula
