Basically I'm freaking out, I have read that people can get pregnant on the implanon. I haven't been feeling "right" for a couple of weeks now but I'm too scared to to a HPT. I usually have no period - haven't since going on the implanon in feb 07, but lately I've been feeling much more bloated and gassy than normal, and been more emotional and getting headaches and been spotting....

If anyone can help *reassure* me (if possible) or just offer any advice I would be very greatful.

It's of course possible but very, very, very unlikely. Implanon is very safe, only fails if you happen to be very overweight and the hormone isn't strong enough, or if there was a problem with the insertion.

Considering your periods stopped when it was inserted, I would say that your implanon is working correctly.

Spotting is normal - some women spot constantly on implanon. All the symptoms you've described can be related to the implant.

So, I can reassure you, but if you're still worried, only thing that will reassure you for certain is taking a pregnancy test, which I'm sure will be negative for you.

I've been pregnant twice since being on implanon. I miscarried the first one at 6wks and the second one at 9wks. They can't find where the implanon is on my body because it moved and for both pregnancies they told me they couldn't do anything due to me being pregnant and not to worrybecause it won't affect it....but clearly it did.

actually implanon will not affect the child you are carrying. implanon is a replica of the hormone progestogen which your body produces naturally every month to stop your ovaries from releasing an egg. so all implanon does is release progestogen every day into your body to stop you releasing any eggs. now if you unfortunately do release an egg and become pregnant (which should be very unlikely) your body naturally produces more progestogen to stop the ovaries once again from releasing any eggs whilst you are with child. the implanon has no effect on the child as it is producing the exact same hormone which your body is producing and pumping to your ovaries throughout the 9 months of a child being carried this therefore has no effect on the development of the child whatsoever

i have been having the same thing happen to me, i got serval pregnancy tests and all negative, but on oct 15 i got the implanon out and still been having symptoms that i am pregnant. i have been having the smae freaken symptoms since july and all negative tests and nothing to show for in a ultrasound either. the moment i took it out i bleed for 3 days then got sick twice, my stomach is getting bigger by the day so now what do i do. july, august, september, i bleed and had symptoms the october i the symptoms and no period freaked out and got another test negative, took it out got a test that friday still negative, then a week after negative. Now just waiting a little while and i am going to get another test cuz the doc at the er said you wont get pregnant for 1 to 2 years after taking the implanon out, but i have read online that you can get prego right away so now what. so if i am pregnant how far along would i be if i had symptoms since july. also been having kicking motions too. I know what that all feels like I have two kids. Also i had a major pain right under my chest in the upper stomach area before i got the implanon out so yea. i want to know what is going on. done the research and found out alot of things so i think i am going on with i think is best going to wait to see if the symptoms get worse and go farther on.

kicking is def false alarm
about the kicking-fact is, you wouldn't be able to feel the baby kicking until you are at LEAST 4 months along. the baby is so very tiny in the first months there is NO way you could feel it kicking. i've been pregnant, so trust me,i know what kicking feels like. also, if he was big enough to kick, your stomach would be starting to show signs of pregnancy. so i would say attribute the kicking sensation to something funky the implant is causing.

I'll have to disagree with this because I jus had a baby ten months ago so I also knw what it feels like when a baby is kickin, I have been on the implanon since last August or September & for some weeks now I've been feelin kicking! It is not true that u have to be 4months preg to feel ur baby kick, I do lots of reading & some moms can feel it as early as up to 10weeks. Also, it is not true that if ur 4minths u will have a bulge, some people go the whole term without looking pregnant at all. & I too have had no period, severe cramps, spotting, cravings, & I've recently become very emitional jus as I was when I was first pregnant with my daughter. The only way to b sure is to get a blood test & possible an ultra sound. I think it's possible I may b pregnant so I'm gonna sched an on/gun appointment.

Hey, I have been on the implant for a year now, been having on and off periods but this one now I haven't had for about 3 months, I have been getting spotty and having mood swings and having very sore breasts and always feeling bloated but I don't know what to do? Go get a scan to check or go to the doctors to see if its the implantation making me react like this.. If not then I don't know :/ and remember whoever has implant and did get pregnant or are YOU CAN SEW THE COMPANY because its only 1% of getting pregnant with this implant and 99% you can't so..

Am i pregnant of the implant?
Hi, I've had the implant now for over a year.. and I have recently come on my period and not come off for around 3 weeks. However, some days were just spotting as previously mentioned. This is worrying me as I have just been told I've got shingles... but before being diagnosed my mum asked if I was pregnant, as I have been having cravings, sickness and using the toilet more often then usual. Then I thought I could'nt be because of my period situation, this was then when my mum told me she still had hers all through her pregnancy with my brother. This is a problem as I am house bound due to illness and I do not wish to tell my mum that it could be possible. Please help!

Hey...I'm sorry...I didn't want to be the bubble buster but...I totally understand what she is talking about. I'm not just spotting, I'm having a full period which is out of the ordinary for me cause since I've been on this thing (Jan. 2008)I've had maybe 2 light periods, and I've been feeling fine up til now. I'm tired, I feel fat, I'm moody, and having really commons signs to being pregnant. I know that the chances of getting pregnant are 1 in 100 but, sometimes when you feel unordinary or feel like you did when you got pregnant, it makes you question how well this thing really works you know? I was wondering if because you have the implant, is it possible for it to kick out the, "negative" sign when you take a pregnancy test, I took one and it came back negative so i thought that being pregnant was all in my head, but now my symtoms are much stronger, the sickness, tiredness, sleepy, moody, you know all the regular stuff you start to feel when you pregnant. So...I just thought that I would share what's going on with me and the implanon thing.

This is exactly how I'm feeling, I was in the IMPLANON for 5 years and never bled once, had it removed and had my baby girl who is now 2. 3 months ago i had the NEXPLANON inserted and all has been fine, no periods nothing, then about 2 weeks ago my moods started changing, I've become more and more jealous, bad temper, I'm hot, feeling dizzy when i stand up to quickly, (all of these i experienced when i was pregnant). I've also started bleeding, but it very brown and started off light with no clots but has started become slightly more heavy, I also have a slight sharp stabbing pain where period cramps would usually be, I've done a pg test and that came back negative, but I'm wondering the same; does it just kick out the negative sign because of hormonal imbalance. xxxx

blood test negative anyone??
I recently took a blood test and it came out negative. I got the deppo in Oct. 2010, then in June of 2011, I got the implanon. I haven't ever had my period since October. But last week I had light blood when I wiped, which I researched could be called implantation which is a sign of pregnancy (a lot of you said you had light spotting). On Friday last week, I had a horrible migraine, the worst I've ever had in my life, and since then I've had nausea and feel like throwing up, lower back aches, a tightness in my stomach all the time (I think that's boating), I haven't been able to eat BC nothing around good at all, my boobs jus started to sag yesterday, and i'm only 20, my left breast especially feels heavy, and when I rub against them they get irritated. I am also extremely dizzy. I have called different doctors and they say if the blood test comes back negative, then I am not pregnant. I have an appointment on Monday to take out the Implanon because I know it causes defects to the baby. I'm really sure I am pregnant, but I was wondering if any of you were pregnant but your blood test showed up negative?? Is this common with the Implanon? I know it is with a urine test. I am so glad women can help women on this site! Thank you!

the implanon is not like the depo shot. the depo makes you gain extreme amounts of weight while the implanon is only supposed to make you gain 3-5 lbs during the whole 3 year period. ive asked my doctor and several others and this is what theyve ALL told me. sorry. and i know about three people who are pregnant or have had kids while on the implanon. and i myself am in the middle of a crisis hoping and praying im not pregnant because i too have the implanon had it for about three months now and i have a ten month old . im not ready for another kid yet so im hoping its all in my head but im having symptoms too. i usually bleed a lot every day but it has stopped or been really light crimson-brown ish. and i had a clear gooey liquid come out. im really worried.

pregancy tests while on implanon
which test did u take because i got the cheaper test from tesco and if you get two lines, one in the control panel and one in the other box, that means you are pregnant. Mine came out negative twice but im worried because ive had implanon in for about 9 months and had constant bleeding with only a day or two breaks i now havnt bled in about 11 days have had bad stomach pains, milky discharge, movements headaches dizziness nausia. i went to the doc and after a quick feel she put the pain down to stress and wouldnt consider it possible to be pregnant whilst on implanon but i feel so different and its got to the point where people are looking at me and asking if im pregnant

False positives only happen if you are on hormone treatment to get pregnant. The tests that detect pregnancy 1wk early can be "false positives" if you were actually pregnant & miscarried early on, which is fairly common.

when i got on the implanon i bleed for the first three months straight and i kept goinng to get checked cause i was tired of buying pads tampons and panty liners, but it started to get lighter and then eventually went away ive had it now for almost a whole year and havent bleed once. now i been feeling bloated and tired and full all the time, with my first son i didnt throw up alot and didnt get any strong symptoms so i didnt know i was prego with him till i was a month pregnant but now im scared too i took a prgo test and it came up invalid no lines at all im starting to wonder if i take another one if it will turn out negative? i feel its important to know sooner than later if im pregnant but how? or what if its too soon to tell and the prego test comes up neg because its too soon, its kind of embarrassing to go to the doc get a blood test and then it comes out negative...i havent told me bf my full concerns yet but damn i always that it was impossible to get prego on the implanon?

I have had the implanon for about 8 mos now and for the past 4 months now i've been having this over whelming feeling that i'm pregnant.. I had my daughter 10 mos ago, and although I'm not extremely nauseas like I was with her, I have cravings, and have felt kicking (mind you I first felt my daughter moving when I was 13 weeks along) I had mentioned something to my doctor and he said that it's highly unlikely and that it's probably just my intestines... seeing all these posts makes me feel like I should seriously get something checked out..

That's totally normal. While on Implanon it's totally normal to not have a period. My three years of Implanon will be over in October of 2012, So I've had it in my arm for almost three years. I have never had one period since I've been on Implanon. Because of this, it may make you scared, especially at first when I was. It makes you a lot more paranoid because your normal periods before Implanon aren't happening at all. I would often times get super paranoid in the first couple of months, but after that I just realized that I was worrying about nothing. However, I have just recently (yesterday) started getting some very very light discharge from my vagina. It's a brownish color (old blood) and I'm worried that it's implantation bleeding. Anyone have any advice?

honestly ladies all of you i think we are all over reacting if you think your pregnant dont have insurance go to plan parent hood rather than sitting on here and writing that you r scared you should be out there doing something about it. i think we all secretly want to be pregnant or want attention and thats why we are all on here complaining... but if you really are pregnant than its a blessing dont overlook it any other way than that everything happens for a reason if your pregnant then it was suposed to happen and trust me it will make you a better person cause me being a mother it most certainly made me a better stronger individual.. but really ladies dont be scared this stuff happens its the way of life its just how you handle it that you should be thinking about. handle it with care honor faith and courage be strong ladies cause in the end its just us and our babies

implanon
i had this fitted and it made me constantly bleed for 3 months straight and made me feel generally sick, i asked the doctor to remove it cuz it purely was not agreeing with me and they said i had to leave it 4 or 5 months to let it try and regulate and it never did so it was awful for me and it also made me put on masses of weight. it does have bad effects .

How'd you go ms_dd_2009?
I'm having the same issues right now... am on my second Implanon - had my first for 4 years, and got a new one 4 months ago. Two weeks ago I started getting nausea, firstly in the morning, now it comes & goes all day. I don't have any other symptoms of any sickness. I also have increased sense of smell. Everyone including my doc thinks I'm PG even though 3 HPT have been negative. I've been for blood tests today to double check for pg & also to see if the nausea is being caused by something else. I'll have the results in a week.

On my first Implanon, I had no bleeding for 12 months, then almost constant bleeding for the next 3 years, which I hated. But, I have had the second one put in because I'm hopeless with pills & injections and tried the Nuva-ring in between my 1st & 2nd Implanon & it totally screwed me around with worse bleeding & constant thrush. This time with the Implanon, after the first 4 weeks I haven't had any bleeding (love it). Shall let you know what the pg result is next week.

Im in the same boat
Hey im the same way, i got Implanon almost 2 years ago and all went well until 1-2 months ago. I never have spotting, cramps....nothing, however now, i have been having spotting that would last a weeks and go away for a couple of day and then come back for about a week. Now when i wipe, i have a lot of mucus down there. Every time i wipe, i have this mucus that is long and more less white a cloudy and at times a very light pink...kinds samony color. I just had sex a months ago for the first time in 7 months, so im kinda worried that i might be pregnant. I got on here to see if anyone has had false positives to see if i can do hpt or if i should go in to the doc. I have been getting dizzy for months now, just out of nowhere. Im starting to get tired and not wanting to do anything, but i think that is more about gaining a little weight. Just hang in there, i keep asking my mother, (OB/GYN) and she says that im fine, but i think it's a quick way out.

Hey I have been on birth control since i was 13 years old because I have always had irregular periods and about a year ago I got the implanon and at first I could of swore I was pregnant. I had the tiredness, the cravings, the sickness, the bloating..ect. and I couldn't base it off my periods because I haven't had one in almost 2 years so I took and pregnancy test and it came out POSITIVE!! i waited a day and took another one with the same results and I went to the doctor and got a blood test and it came out negative.. i was a little confused and disappointed but the doctor told me i had these symptoms because of the change in bc and the hormone imbalance in my body so that's y it came out positive with the home test. so the best thing to do is to go see your doctor and have them do a blood test.

spotting
I got implanon about 7 mths ago 6 weeks after I had my 4th surprise baby (i was on pill). Right after it was inserted I had a pretty heavy and long bleeding (long as in more than a usual period would be. it lasted like 10 days). It was crazy because I had just gotten done with post preg bleeding. I haven't had a cycle since. But just yesterday I started having very light brown spotting and I've really not had that before. Anyone get it like that out of the blue while on this? I havent' really had a cycle since Jan 2006 because I got preg then was bfing and I don't have cycles while nursing and then I got preg again while on pill and weaning my 3rd and since then been bfing again. I guess you could probably count the odd bleeding right after implanon insertion as a cycle but other than that it's been years for me. Only other spotting I've had was when preg but praying that isn't the case I'll flip!

Implanon
iv been on the impalant for 2 and a half years. about a months ago i was takin st johns worts only to find out that it can cause the implant to stop working. I have had a period which was different to the rest in colour, it was a very bright red and i had no pain with it which is unusual. Since my period i have had really bad thrush and although iv treated it, it seems like it is coming back, i look and feel bloated everyday, iv been getting hot flushes and now have to sleep with the window open even if it is cold outside, i havent been going to the toilet more but one min i wont need the loo then i will really need it. I have been getting short sharp pains in my belly and legs and along with this i am very tired i sleep all night and dont get up until the afternoon but feel as if i need to go back to sleep! Could i be pregnant or am i just worring over nothing please help!!

Implant Preganancy after 2 years
Okay so it seems that afew people on here have now had the same problem as me....i have had the implanon for 2 years and 5 months now but after 2 years and one month i fell pregnant. And again after 2 years and 5 months. I have miscarried both times and had exact same as mritchey up there. I am getting the feeling that the implanon (for some people) is not as effective after the first 2 years! surely we should be letting someone know. I for one will be going to my doctor and requesting a new implanon inserted...i will let you all know how it goes

I have been on implanon for 3 months now, the first 2 months I got my periods at the right time. Now I've had sex whilst on it I haven't got my period!
I feel bloated and fat ALL the time, like someone's pumping up a balloon in my stomach. I'm constantly hungry and getting random stomach pains. Anyone else had this??
I've taken a home pregnancy test and it was negative - are they still acurate when you've got the implant?

Seeing as nearly every one here has said similar things I don't really see the need to describe all the details, however I am only in my 3rd week of having implanon and am feeling very sick every day for almost a week now, bloated stomach, constantly tired and dizzyness so I am going to go to the dr's sometime throughout this week and I will comment back with the results and details to try and answer some of your questions Smile x

Im pregnant and have had implanon in since Oct.08
I had implanon inserted in Oct of 08 and just took a preganacy test and it is positive. My doctor told me that if you get pregnant while implanon is in it will be a tubel preganancy. My doctor told me for the first two weeks to use protection, after that we don't have to. I did bleed in Nov. Then in June 09 I bleed and that's when I got pregnant before I had that period. How can I be pregnant?
