Can I still use tampons while using the levonorgestrel-releasing implant?

The levonorgestrel-releasing implant does not prevent you from using tampons. However, you should be careful when removing a tampon, to make sure you are pulling the strings of the tampon and not the threads of the implant. If you have trouble with this, or if you have any concerns, you should talk to your doctor. You should not feel any discomfort with tampons after receiving a levonorgestrel-releasing implant.
