I'm not really worried my implanon is gonna break. its pretty flexible .. and its in a place that doesnt really get messed with. (under my left arm... I'm right handed)
Plus unlike IUDs, if it breaks.. you'll know with a simple touch.. IUD can move and you not know a thing. My friend still felt her strings when her's moved.
The surgical procedure is really nothing.. they numb the site.. cut a tiny incision bout |---| yay big.. stick it in there under the skin.. no stitches .. just a steristrip and let heal.. to get it out..same thing.. numb, cut a small incision, get it out... let it heal.. My OB was super gentle and very attentive to if I was in pain.. and literally.. all I felt was the numbing shot. Now any time I see my OB (literally.. my friend used him and just had a baby.. I went with her to a few appointments) he checks it also. Which is cool.. bc who's OB remembers you later? lol I even have him on facebook :P
yes, I know.. I facebook stalked my OB.. what can I say.. the man is good looking..
