Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms do not sound normal. Consider visiting your gynecologist to see if the implant is in the right place and working fine. You might need hormonal tests and ultrasound scan to see what could be the cause for low back pain, and swollen stomach. These symptoms are also suggestive of pregnancy, a blood HCG test done would help in confirming/ruling out pregnancy.
Take care.
