Unlikely: Very unlikely if it was placed during your menstrual cycle.
Dr. Alan Patterson
Obstetrics and Gynecology 42 years experience
Probably not BUT: It is easy to do a urine preg test and if u are still worried the doc who put the impanon in can do a blood preg test.
Dr. Liza Kunz
Maternal-Fetal Medicine 21 years experience
Yes, but low risk : Implanon is more than 99% effective. There’s less than one pregnancy per 100 women who used Implanon for one year. The only thing that is 100% risk free is not having sex, which is not practical for many women.
Dr. Ron Eaker
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: No birth control method is 100 percent; however the likelihood of pregnancy on Implanon is very low.
Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: The failure rate is almost statistically non existent.

?????: After you are done with your pregnancy it can be placed, usually your OB will want you to have a post partum exam at 6 weeks and if everything is ok then can be inserted after that, it cannot be put in while you are pregnant !
