Lost Implanon Implants

Implanon is a birth control implant manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.

The implant is similar in size to a matchstick and releases a progestinhormone to prevent pregnancy. It is implanted in the arm. The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Implanon in July, 2006.

Merck and related Implanon Lawsuitmanufacturers marketed Implanon to women and their physicians as a safe contraceptive option that is “reversible” and able to be removed whenever a patient changes her mind.  However, as described in recent litigation, Merck knew or should have known about the propensity of Implanon to spontaneously move after proper insertion and become lost in the body with no way to find or remove the implant.

Woman with lost implants are at risk for serious and potentially permanent injury, including neural damage, vascular damage, ectopic pregnancy, fertility issues and the inability to stop a drug-related adverse event or complication.

We believe women with lost implants are entitled to compensation.  This compensation is essential to help shoulder the substantial cost of medical treatment that is needed to try to find the implant, surgically remove it, or treat resulting damage from an irretrievable implant.  As a result, we have agreed to represent multiple women in claims relating to lost Implanon implants.

      Nikki- Did you get our email? We are unable to provide medical advice. You may want to discuss this with your doctor.

  1. I had the implant for two years had it removed early because all the pain it caused. I still feel pain from it almost four years after removing it.

  2. I had the Implanon implant for 8 months. It was excruciating! I bled HEAVILY for the entire 8 months. I experienced bouts of depression and anxiety, breast soreness, moodiness, irritability all things that are very abnormal for me. I would NOT recommend Implanon to anyone in my personal opinion it should be removed from the market after the pain and frustration I went through.

  3. I have the implanan, and have had it for almost the full three years. I felt like something was wrong with it before I started having seizures last July. I really think it may have let out to many hormones maybe, I was told that I had a chemical em balance in my frontal love but they don’t know what caused it, and I can’t afford to go to neurologist to see. They will be removing it in November so I guess I may never know what caused my chemical em balance
