Thinking about changing my contraceptive implant to the patch?

In brief: An option

First you would need to have the implant removed to prevent overlap in the hormone levels.
You could start the patch immediately after having the Implanon taken out, or you could wait until cycles resume to begin the patch. Just don't use them simultaneously.
