If you are considering a contraceptive implant then it might be worth reading this article. It seem that there have been a number of complaints regarding the Implanon device. 1,600 women have complained to the medicines watchdog including 584 who had unwanted pregnancies as a result. The device when working correctly is implanted under the skin and releases hormones into the bloodstream from a tiny tube in the arm. This is supposed to stop women getting pregnant for three years. The Implanon device, however, has received a number of complaints not only of unwanted pregnancies but also of adverse reactions and incorrectly implanted devices. The NHS has so far paid out more than £200,000 in compensation to women who fell pregnant or who were injured by the implant.
