Is there any possibility implanon could be the cause of my bladder problems which are becoming very severe. It is not a UTI. I have seen two medical doctors and three urologists so far. I have had a urine cytology test, came up negative. I do have microscopic amounts of blood in my urine. I just had a kidney scan, results are not in yet. I have been on over active bladder meds which did not help at all. One doc said he thinks it is interstitial cystitis but I was unable to follow up with him. Anyway, this began shortly after I got the implanon. The gynecologist who gave it to me has left his practice. I suffer from an almost constant need to urinate and now I also have at times severe pelvic and low back pain.

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. In view of the symptoms which you are already having, it will be good to get the urine analysis done and wait for the ultrasound kidneys report. We need to rule out the kidney stones or nephrolitihiasis which may cause some of these symptoms like blood in urine and severe back and pelvic pain.

It’s important to make a habit of drinking more water as any small stones can be flushed out of the urinary tract. Please do consult a physician for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
