Nexplanon Implant Change


#1

Hi,

I had my implant put in on the 26th September 2016.
I knew I was coming up to the 3 year mark this month so I have just booked an appointment to have it changed at my local GP and have an appointment for 17th September.
After I booked the appointment I realised that on the card thing they give you when you first get the implant, it says the date for removal is 26th August 2019.
I’m just panicking a bit now that I’m at risk of getting pregnant?

Hello @grace9818

Don’t worry. The implant provides effective contraception for the full 3 years.

Thanks for the question.
