There is a very very low risk and there has only been a few cases where women with the implant have became pregnant .
Implanon is concidered highly effective, less than 1 out of 100 woman using Implanon will get pregnant each year. Using a condom along with the implant make the risk of pregnancy even less and reduces the spread of STDs.
Implants and injections are very effective methods of contraception and are proven to be 99% percent reliable in preventing pregnancy.
This is one of the safest method of contraception. But no method is 100 % effective. Very rarely, this method fails and you can get the pregnancy. You are advised to go for pregnancy test at the home only. Say every two weeks, when you do not have the menses.
