Frequently Asked Questions About Removal Of Implanon Contraceptive
When should I get the birth control implant removed?
Nexplanon (a white rod-like contraceptive device) works for 5 years, and a nurse or doctor must remove it once it expires. You can also get your implant taken out any time before then if you want to get pregnant or stop using it.
If you’ve had your implant for 5 years and you still don’t want to get pregnant, you need to replace it (or pick another birth control method). You can get a new implant when you have the old one removed.
How does it feel to get the birth control implant removed?
Nexplanon removal only takes a few minutes, but the process is a little longer than getting it put in.
Just like with the insertion, a doctor or nurse gives you a shot to numb a small area of your arm. Then they make a small cut and remove the implant. You usually just feel a little pinch or stinging when you get the numbing shot. After that, it shouldn’t hurt when they make the incision or take the implant out.
If you want to continue using Nexplanon, you can get another implant put in during the removal of your old one.
How soon can I get pregnant after getting the implant removed?
It’s possible to get pregnant right away. If you get your implant removed and you don’t want to get pregnant, use another method of birth control.
What should I expect after I get my implant removed?
Overall, you should feel completely normal after getting your implant taken out. Your arm may feel tender or swollen around where the implant was for a few days. It may look bruised for a week or two. Your doctor or nurse will tell you how to wash and take care of your skin for a couple of days after removal.
Unless you start another hormonal birth control method after removing the implant, your period will go back to how it was before you got Nexplanon.
Yes, I had sex with my patient but ‘no penetration’, confesses rapist Sokoto doctor
Tijjani Faruk, the Sokoto medical doctor accused of sedating and raping a married patient, has confessed to having sex with the patient before investigative panel set up by the ministry of Health to investigate the matter.
In an audio recording of the panel sitting exclusively obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN, the doctor was heard admitting to having sex with the patient but later said the sex was without penetration.
“To the best of my recollection, the only time she came to common room was that very Saturday, which she came with a small girl.
“I have something to say here. I want us to trash this issue. The truth of the matter we had sex with Zuwaira (not her real name). Yes, yes I am saying this,” Mr Faruk confessed.
But when the panel reminded him about the gravity of his confessions, he made U-turn, saying there was no penetration during the sex and it was not rape.
GRADUATE NURSES WERE DISGRACED TODAY OUT OF THE SCREENING HALL AT UNIVERSITY OF BENIN TEACHING FOR NOT HAVING RN AND RM
The graduate Nurses, most of who have their RN without RM have been thrown into sadness following the act of the Head of Department of Nursing, University of Benin Teaching Hospital.
The Head of Nursing Department of the Hospital, was vehement on candidates having RN and RM and this is a pointer to the fact that the innate discrimination against this set of Nurses have eaten rather deep into the senses of some Nurses.
"We don't want people who will come to fight management for not properly placing them" This was the take of one of the senior Nurses involved in the screening.
But if they don't employ these "foot soldiers" as they implied graduate Nurses are, who would fight the very many anomalies the profession is facing? Who would help keep our profession safe from intruders and maligners? Who would remain firm in the face of adversity wh…
