Customer Question
I have had my implanon...
I have had my implanon since November last year and have been able to feel it fine. Just recently if i run my finger along it, it is no longer smooth and i can feel lumps along the implanon? should i be worried or is this muscle forming over it or something like that?

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

Hello,

Customer:

hi

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

You should not be worried by this .This is just the fibrous tissue which is forming over it or these are the fat tissue over it.

Customer:

Will this make the implanon harder to remove? as i still have 2 1/2 years left

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

No,it does not affect its removal.

Customer:

is it unusual then? as none of my friends have had the bumps forming?

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

It is the reported side effect with this implant.Most probably does not occured with your friends.This is just a formation of extra tissue .

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

Are you there?

DR.TIWARI ,M.S. :

If you are satisfied with my answer then please PRESS GREEN ACCEPT.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
