I am 23 years old i have had implanon in for contraception for 2years now. I recently noticed that i had put on quite a bit of weight and i still eat the same and exercise the same. because i noticed the weight i thought i was pregnant because my tummy looks like it with all the weight thats just appeard.

I being paranoid squeezed my nipple because i have already gave birth so i knew that if i was preg that fluid coming out of nipples might happen. i have milk coming from just the right nipple. I am always tired at the end of day but when i go to bed i cant sleep for ages.

I done 4 home pregnany test cheap ones and then the clear blue. i went to family planning and they said you cant be pregnant if you have had implanon in for 2years. so i went to gp and he took my blood i dont get the results til another week and i cant sleep or hardly eat with worry

i have an exam to study for and i cant concentrate on anything. has anyone had these symptons so kind of let me know what it could be.

sorry for the long question.
thank you

Hi auk,

I'd suggest that you just relax and wait. There's not way to know for sure if you're pregnant or not until the blood results come back. No need to worry. The results will be in any day now. If you've given birth before, how old is your child now?

It sounds very improbable that you are pregnant. I can understand your concern. Please let us know what the results are. What's the theme of the party?

She means it is unlikely you are pregnant. Meaning: You are not pregnant.

Birth control (implanon) can cause weight gain.
Bloating can cause your stomach to be weird looking and the leaking breast? That can be 100% completely normal. Heck, if I squeeze on my nipple enough, I can get something to come out too. (By the way, it isn't 'milk'. Your body doesn't make milk unless a baby is nursing on your breast.)

Even cheap pregnancy tests pick up the same amount of hormone levels that expensive tests do.

thank you for your replys. i got my blood test back today they said it was fine. i thought they were checking to see if i was pregnant but they were checking to make sure there was nothing wrong because of leaking nipple. looks right you are correct and i am ok. The doctor said they cant tell if i am pregnant with a blood sample she said if i want them to check for pregnancy i would have to make another appoint to do a urine sample.

i told the doctor i had already done 4 pregnancy tests and she said that there test is just as good as the home tests.my breasts just keep getting bigger thou like they done when i was pregnant with my first child.maby i just need to lose some weight hehe

They checked you for progesterone. It is a hormone that can cause the breast issues you are talking about. It sounds like everything is ok with that though. Wink

Even small amounts of weight gain can show up in your boobs. I'm not saying you have or have not gained weight, I'm only expressing a theory of things that could be causing this. Birth control also causes breasts to get larger. I don't know why it would take 2 years for this to happen though...

Think of this as a great excuse to get some new bras! Wink

thank you i didnt even know what they checked for shows how good my docotrs are.

i dont know where the weight gain has came from i exercise every night and have been on a speacil healthy eating plan and exercise for 30mins everynight and walk for an hour 3 times a week. because i was diganoised with very bad constipation.ended up in hospital with it all the time. So i dont know where the weight gain would of came from. its like its just happend all of a sudden n am sure if the implanon was going to increase my weight it would of done it by now.

oh this is so annoying its the only thing on my mind its a pain. dont think i have ever worried that much. supose i did want bigger breasts hehe Very Happy

i dont no if the weight gain is maby because i am due my period well i think i am becuase of the implanon i am all over the place with my period i wouldnt even be able to tell if i had missed one.

I think i have just gone over board with being paranoid that i am pregnant.

I read to much on this internet. i read that if you have implanon in and become pregnant there is a much higher chance of an etopic pregnancy. and then i read about etopic pregnancies and it said that signs of this are cramps and abdominal pain and spotting.

I had my main period last on the 14th june which lasted about a week my normal lenth of a period. I then had bleeding on the 28th june which was weird and not like my period.it only lasted 3 days. i didnt even need a tampon the bleeding was like. was this spotting.

I havent had period or bleeding again since they dates. Its hard to tell when my period is thou because i have implanon in. any replys to that please. i need to stop worrying i going to give myself a really bad headache i pacing up and down this is so annoying.

If you're worrying this much, buy a pregnancy test.

I think she took 4 pregnancy tests. Smile

Auk, if you are still worried then you should contact your doctor and tell him your concerns so that he can run the appropriate tests.

I thought irregular bleeding, as well as weight gain, were side effects of implanon?

hi auk you can get pregnant while using the implant. you can ask your doctor 2 do a test 4 you. but the more you worry about it then your symptoms will carry on. you will have have to calm down and try and put it 2 the back ov your mind. ask ur doctor to do a pregnancy test tho 2 put ur mind at rest. and also remember your syptoms are also linked 2 u havin ur implant.

In the same boat - Advice Please!!!!!
Hi, my name is Nicola, and think I could be in the same place as mommie504.....I have implanon and over the past week or so I have experienced horrible nausea mainly on a morning but does come and go throughout the day, dizziness, headaches, extreme tiredness even if I've not done much, occasionally sore nipples but they do look a bit darker and I can notice the white pimple like dots around them more than usual. I always seem to need the loo and today having mood changes like you wouldn't believe. Also had cramping on both sides sometimes just dull but strong enough for me to know its there and other times a bit sharp but comes and goes all day

I must have done dozens of tests and they all came back negative, I know I feel different but think i'm going crazy. I have put a urine sample in at the docs and get the results tomorrow. mommie504 did you have a blood test and how far on were you when you found out?

Any advice would be grately appreciated

Thanks Nicola
