A simple and non-invasive procedure
What happens when you need to remove a contraceptive implant?
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 an implant, you can get another implant put in during the removal of your old one or you can get any other contraceptive.
