I have had my implanon for little under 2 years now and my period has been completely irregular the entire time. In the beginning I would have a moderate to heavy flow for several months which would cause me to be very tired and dizzy due to the constant blood loss then I wouldn't have a period for months. I've recently been showing signs of pregnancy, weight gain, weird food craving, breast swelling and tenderness, headaches, fatigue, sudden urges to pee (esp in the middle of te night) mood swings very hormonal. I cry at the drop of a hat. I've never had these symptoms before. I'm 22 years old. I have read you can experience false pregnancy symptoms on the implanon so I'm not sure if I should worry. But when I make my boyfriend drive up to get me pickles at midnight it seems like I should be worrying. I'm not sure if I should take a preg test bc everyone seems to be saying that it will show up neg even if I am pregnant. I'm worried bc if I am pregnant I don't want to harm the baby!

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms are suggestive of pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, then it is time that you consider visiting your gynecologist for a thorough examination to confirm/look for various signs suggestive of pregnancy along with blood HCG level tests and ultrasound scan to confirm/rule out pregnancy. If you are found to be pregnant, you will need to get the Implanon removed immediately. Do not delay your visit to your gynecologist.
Take care.
