Improper placement: most common reason for failure is improper placement of the implant. There are theoretically many medications and substances that can interfere with the livers processing of the hormone in the implant. However, these are theoretical. Recommend you see your doctor to ensure the implant is placed properly. If pregnant with the implant, make sure you see your doctor.
