Can I get pregnant with implants?
Hello, I am 27 years, old female. Hey, I am currently on the contraceptive implant and for complicated reasons, I cannot get it removed. I got it 2 years back as I didn't want to get pregnant. I thought I was not ready but now I have to but there are certain complications because of which I cannot get it removed. However I want to get pregnant, is there any way I can boost my chances to get pregnant?
@ido Hello, The contraceptive implant is a small flexible plastic rod that's placed under the skin of your upper arm by a doctor or nurse. It releases the hormone progestogen into your bloodstream to prevent pregnancy and lasts for 3 years. You can have it removed at any time, and your natural fertility will return quickly. The implant steadily releases the hormone progestogen into your bloodstream, which prevents the release of an egg each month. It would help if you had your implanted contraceptive removed before attempting to get pregnant. The implanted contraceptive slowly releases hormones into your bloodstream. There is a chance you may become pregnant after the hormones are exhausted, but it is highly advised that you remove the implant. Each case is different, but most physicians would advise against pro-fertility treatment while you still have the implant. Thanks!
