Failed Implanon

Failure of Implanon Device to provide contraception

Success story

Sybil had an Implanon inserted in February 2004. However, in April 2005 she became pregnant, and the baby was born in December. An ultrasound scan showed no evidence of an Implanon device in Sybil's arm, and a blood test showed no trace of the hormone Etonegestrel, which should be present in the Implanon. PMS Expert Report concluded that the Implanon Device was almost certainly inserted incorrectly, and that the doctor failed to palpate the arm to check that the insertion had been successful. This resulted in the unplanned pregnancy. The case settled and Sybil received compensation.
