An implant is something that can prevent pregnancy from occurring for several years. Women who have an implant are looking to avoid pregnancy for 3 to 5 years and it is very effective. Like most other types of birth control, the implant will prevent pregnancy 99% of the time. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Since there is a small chance that pregnancy will still occur with an implant in place, there are a few women every year who do become pregnant while the device is still intact. However, when replaced as required and implanted correctly, this is usually not something that happens.

If you find you are pregnant and you have an implant in place, you will need to have it removed. If the device is left in place, it could cause you to miscarry or cause other issues with your pregnancy. This is something your doctor should do as soon as possible.

For those who have decided they are ready to conceive, you should be able to simply have the device removed by your doctor. Usually, this will only take a few minutes and then you will be able to try to become pregnant. Most women are able to begin ovulating rather quickly after they have their implant removed. Getting pregnant after the implant should not cause excessive difficulties, unless it takes some time for ovulation to return.
