pregnant on implanon?
I'm a bit worried about being pregnant, too... it seems pretty common.

I've been on it since may 2011, and I know it's in there, I can feel it. Anyway... lately I've been feeling: nausea at night, sensitive smell, exhaustion, aching breasts (mostly nipples), way more moodier, and just generally "feeling pregnant".

I'm overweight (close to 200lbs), and apparently that can make it less effective?? I'm having it removed on friday, and if symptoms persists I'm doing a PT next week/week after that. This feels much different than my previous side-effect symptoms.

I think I'm pregnant, have all the symptoms including breasts leaking milk and moving (kicking?) in my tummy. I have taken about 4 pregnancy tests and all have come out negative. Could Implanon interfere with the pregnancy tests?

Hey, so I'm only 17 and I'm on my second implant, I have very recently (july '12) had my Implanon fitted. Whilst on my first implant, I had many 'pregnancy' scares in the sense that I simply freaked out about having unprotected sex and I was very quick to rush off and buy a pregnancy test, but this time is different. Maybe I'm just being foolish but I feel horrible and sicky (not actually being sick though) I'm tired all the time and I seem to be getting bigger, not so much gaining weight because I'm not eating much, but I'm filling out. It's not like I'm getting fat or anything. My mood swings are outrageous too, I can go from being completely happy to going nuts over the smallest of things. I know that the implant changes your periods and things like that, and I'm not stupid when it comes to pregnancy because I have been around so many, I'm just worried. I'm doing my A-levels and I have no job, it's not the life for a baby. Do you think I could be pregnant or am I just playing mind games with myself?

I have also had comments from people saying things like 'are you pregnant, you seem to be glowing' and even my boyfriend has added the sneaky 'are you sure you can't get pregnant on this thing' when talking about sickness or the craving for food.

Ok, I now know (think I know??) that I'm about 5 to 6 months pregnant, although I can't prove it. I have taken 6 pregnancy tests now, all negative. I went to a preg center about 6 weeks ago, neg hpt. I went to planned parenthood about 2 or 3 weeks ago, another neg hpt and a quick feel me up and the lady (nurse practioner) said I felt normal. The baby has sleep/wake cycles, moving, kicking and very active about every 3 hours, then sleeping for 2 hours then kicking again. I had a panicky, desperate moment a couple days ago when I tried to remove the Implanon myself and was not successful. Insurance won't pay for Implanon removal unless I get on another form of bc first, so tomorrow morning I have an appointment to get on the pill, hopefully I can have the implant removed next week and hopefully shortly after I'll get a positive preg test result. (It seems that the way Implanon works is by suppressing the hormone HCG, causing the ovary to not release an egg) Or, my husband will actually feel the baby kicking and take me to the ER. Whichever happens first, It won't be long until I can prove I'm pregnant. My husband just thinks I'm fat and lazy lately.

Implanon, Pregnancy
I got Implanon put in March 2011 b/c of heavy periods, horrible cramping, nausea etc. Any birth control takes about 6 months for your body to get used to it. The first month of having it, I had a little bit of mood swings and spotting a lot. But after that, I no longer get my period. About 2 months ago, my boyfriend and I had sex. I have been pregnant and miscarried in the past (a couple years ago) and am now experiencing way too many signs of being pregnant. Is it actually possible to get pregnant on Implanon if you don't have your periods?? Please help me...

Implanon
I had implanon inserted in April this year. I have never stopped bleeding since I had it but was not having sex. I just started having sex in the last 2 weeks and this week I stopped bleeding. I pee a lot and have crazy mood swings and cry a whole lot. I have cravings and am super tired. Could I be pregnant?

Please Help!!!!!
Hi, I'm Katey I'm 17 about to turn 18 and I've been on the implant for a year and a half now before i got on it i was 26 weeks and lost him so i got on the implant. Here lately I've been craving pineapples pickle juice and crushed ice, my boyfriend can look at me funny and I'll start crying. Honestly I've been feeling the same way i did when i was pregnant with my son but my mother doesnt want to take it out because i've been on the pill, depo, Mirena, and now this but i want it out but my obgyn wont take it out either without my mothers approval, would by chance another obgyn take it out without her approval? If i am pregnant i dont want to misscarry again to depressing and stressful and if im not pregnant i just want my body to get back on a normal cycle. Please Help!!
And 2 1/2 weeks ago i got off my period and i was on it for a month straight..

IM THINKING THE IMPLANON MAY IMMITATE PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS. IVE HAD IT FOR 2 YRS NOW & I TAKE A PREG TEST FAITHFULLY EVERY MONTH BECAUSE IM ALWAYS FEELING PREGNANT. I TOO HAVE FELT THE PHANTOM KICKING. IVE HAD TO BE PUT ON A BIRTH CONTROL PILL BECAUSE THE IMPLANON HAS WACKED MY HORMONES COMPLETELY OUT OF BALANCE. IT WAS MAKING ME CRAZY EMOTIONAL. MY DOC SAID IT JUST DEPENDS ON YOUR HEIGHT AND WEIGHT. ALSO IF YOU START TO FEEL DEPRESSED YOU NEED TO TAKE IT OUT.

My Side Effects on Implanon
I have had implanon since december 2010.Just about Every single month I have my period. BUT, Out of that month, im on it for 2 to 3 weeks. sometimes for a whole month, and sometimes I dont have it at all. i have had sever pain in my left leg recently, and having quite a few dizzy spells to where i am on my knees. I have spotted before, and thought i had felt kicks, but i thought that was just my imagination kicking in. i have had times to where i thought i was on my period, but it was a different color, not red, more like brown, which people had said it could be signs of miscarriage. i do have a child, so i do know what it is like to be pregnant, but dont know what its like to have a miscarriage. occasionally i will start craving something, i havent gain weight, but i do break out just as much.....

is anyone else having some-what the same symptoms?

I feel like I may be pregnant. I haven't started in a couple months and I've had the implanon for almost a year. I know it takes longer than three days to become pregnant, but I still am worried. I'm too young.

Implanon depo provera pregnancy
Hi I am 19 and I got the implant the first week of September and I got the depo shot 2 weeks before that about 2 weeks after I got the implant I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and ever since then I have been very nauseous bloated gassy emotional moody my face has been breaking out and very oily random cravings my hands are very shaky and i have been sensitive to smells and tastes weird sensations in my uterine area I have never had any children and I had just gotten off of my first period in 3.5 years I have almost no appetite to sensitive to anything I am worried that the two different birth controls may have cancelled each other out am I wrong to think this?? Also the circulation in my legs has been very poor I don't know I'd this would have anything to do with this

There are too many comments for me to go through them all but I too have been having some symptoms like feeling something that feels like kicking and bad cramps and nausea. I am planning a trip to the docs office, I was told by my OBGYN that in some cases if you are pregnant while on implanon it can cause death of the baby so if you have even the slightest doubt go get a blood test from what I hear it is the best way to be sure.

Ladies....
Implanon can cause irregular periods the entire time you are on it. It can also cause you to have NO period at all either right away, or after some months of being I'm it. And the different hormone levels can cause some pregnancy-like symptoms. If the pee rest comes back negative, you most likely are NOT pregnant and he implanon is OVER 99% effective! (when inserted right. And it's hard to insert it wrong.)
Please stop worrying lovelies<3
