Oh dang.  I love mine!  I am on my 3rd one, but I have heard people having this problem.  :-/  Sorry it is happening to you.  

I just had mine removed and replaced in June.  With insurance for removal and insertion, I paid a grand total of $37 with the insertion costing $0 and the removal costing $0.  It was the office visit I had to pay for haha.  

However, they billed my insurance company $320 for removal.  I suspect that is what I would have paid for removal without insurance.  

If you don’t have insurance, I would suggest seeing if Planned Parenthood would do it.  If you do, I would call your OB/GYN and see if they can get a quote on what it will cost you out-of-pocket before you commit to anything.

I have had 2 impalanon and I currently have explanon. I rarely get my period with either, but I know everyone is different. My insurance covered the implanting and removal, so check with them and see if they will pay for it?

Call your insurance company, and they can give you a better idea of coverage if you have it, but with the health care reform  contraceptives are covered at 100% and generally thats for Insertion and removal. This is assuming you are in the U.S. Though.
