HI, i had a question and wasnt sure where to post post it...I had implanon inserted into my arm for 3 years. after 3 years, i had it taken out. For 3 years i had irregular bleeding which was always heavy. i kept the implanon in as i did not want to get pregnant again so soon after my 2nd. Now, after i had it removed, we started to use condoms for 2 months. Now we want to have another baby, so we have been trying. But already i have had 2 periods . i thought you could get pregnant as soon as you come off the implanon? Could there be something wrong with me? Because i have now been off the implanon for 4 months, should i be worried? Was it the right decision that we started to use condoms straight after implanon removal? Thank you for your advice. Zara

Hello Zara,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes your normal fertility and ovulation can return back immediately (depending on type and duration of birth control use). Sometimes it can take few months to upto 1 year’s time. You should consider checking cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results (if you are trying to get pregnant). Keep lying still for sometime after intercourse (do not change positions after ejaculation has occurred). Put pillows under buttocks to minimize spill. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. For further evaluation and assistance, visit your gynecologist/obstetrician. All the best.
Take care.

hang in there .
I was pregnant within the 1st month after having it removed , although i had nothing but dramas and my doc forced me to continue with it . wost thing I have ever done . I am now trying to conceive my 4th child after having the IUD this is a challenge . what I discovered is birth controls mess your system up so badly it can take time for it to sort it's self out , hang in there and it will happen .good luck .
