Yout Implant Removal Appointment

Implant removal is a minor procedure. It will only take a few minutes. 

Your private implant removal appointment:

  • You will be seen by a qualified clinician.
  • They will explain the implant removal procedure and answer any questions.
  • A local anaesthetic will be used to numb your arm.
  • They will make a small incision and gently pull the implant out.

In some circumstances, it can be difficult to find the implant and an ultrasound may be required to help with removal.

About The Implant

The contraceptive implant is a method of contraception involving the implantation of a small device containing certain hormones. The device is a small, plastic, flexible rod that is inserted just under the skin of your upper arm. This will release progestogen into your blood stream to prevent pregnancy and can last up to three years.

Progestogen is a hormone that inhibits fertilisation by preventing ovulation – the release of an egg each month – and thinning the lining of the womb. It will also thicken the cervical mucus to make it more difficult for the sperm to manoeuvre through the cervix.

The implant can be fitted at any time as long as you are not pregnant. If it is inserted during the first five days of your menstrual cycle, you will have immediate protection against pregnancy. If you have it on any other day, you are advised to use additional contraceptive methods (condoms) for seven days following implant insertion. The implant can also be removed at any time and conception is possible once the implant has been taken out.
