hi,
both of them should not be taken at the same time.
Either avoid HRT or remove the implant atleast 1 month before commencement of HRT
thanks

Hi..
Thanks for the query,,

Well,contraception implant itself have hormone releasing channels that are helpful in contraception, so you should not take Hormone replacement when you are already having an implant..
You should always consult a trained Gynaecologist and get evaluated and in case if you want to get the HRT first get the impalnt removed, get a proper hormonal profile done and then accordingly proceed for taking any medications..

Hope this information helps..
