In brief: Poor placement

The fda felt the training in placement was inadequate and removal frequently became a nightmare.
It was 6 implants instead of the current nexplanon, 1 implant, with better required training, fewer complications. If yours was placed appropriately and easily removed, no problems. It was a good option for many.
