Does the levonorgestrel-releasing implant interfere with sex?

The levonorgestrel-releasing implant is very small and is inserted directly into the uterus. Therefore, it should not interfere with sex. The only part of the levonorgestrel-releasing implant you will be able to feel is the strings, or threads, attached to it. If you are using the implant and feel any discomfort during sex, you should see your health care professional to make sure the implant has not moved out of place.
