Implanon is a contraceptive device with a high reliability in the prevention of pregnancy. The insertion is a simple procedure but the physician must master this skill. A number of cases have been recorded in which the rod appeared to have disappeared, which sometimes led to an unwanted pregnancy and sometimes ended in claims for compensation.
