Just asking because I've been on it for 6 months and bled every month...except this month. I am sure I'm just having a month 'off' due to the Implanon but I have been feeling sick,headachy etc. Probabaly or pyschological or a bug but I was just wondering......

I do know that after 6 months your body is supposed to settle down on implanon and then 60 - 80% of women sometimes stop having periods with implanon after 6 months.

Ahh. Maybe that's it then. Oh well we'll sure find out in about 9 months!

lol It will be ok I'm sure, but if you are really worried why not take a test.

Well I have had loads of symptoms but negitive tests. Went to see the midwife this morning and she has done a blood test because with DS2 I didn't get a positive result until my AF was over a month overdue. So I'll know by 4pm today one way or the other. (I'm in NZ by the way so it'll be 3am UK time). Not sure what result I want!

good luck either way.

I have implanon and my periods stopped after a few months and I haven't had one in over a year. I'm sure when I looked into it though that no one had become pregnant on implanon, but I may be wrong.

i have implanon, didnt get an af for 3 months, bled for 3 weeks and havnt had on since, another 3 months down the line.

glad it'll be sorted one way or another today!

Well the blood test came back negitive but because I had a history of miscarrage and had some of the symptoms I had a scan as well just to make sure. Good news is I was completely empty (better make sure it wasn't my head they were looking at LOL. Anyway all the do-do has made me realise I don't want to wait 3 long years to have my third and final baby. So I am going to have my Implanon removed and then start trying in a few months time. So I will be joining you TTCers at the end of the year! Of course you will all have long since moved onto the pregnancy board ^WON'T YOU!!!^ I hearby you all to get your sperm in gear and get pregnant (those of you who want to of course!!!)

Came across this site, I hate to say but yes you can get pregnant on Implanon. My grand daughter had Implanon inserted last April, looking at the sites it seemed usual to put on some weight,which she did, but not a "Bump". This April she was taken into Hospital with expected Appendicitis, guess what she gave birth to a baby boy, shock shock, she is at college and up to the week of the birth had been rock climbing and canoeing with her College. He is a beautiful baby and we love him, but you can imagine what the Nurses said, you cannot get pregnant on it........Tomorrow she has it taken out, she thought she had the perfect contraception, as with many others she had not had a period until December.
Good Luck to all of you, hope it works, now it is a case of searching for another type ANY IDEAS?????

I am too pregnant with Implanon.
I only found out this morning, and am so upset, shocked and angry. For the first few months, everything was going great, i had periods, and it was working.

Then i travelled around Europe for 2 months, had periods, then came back home and saw my boyfriend.
I got the call from the doctor this morning.
I'm so scared, and i don't have any idea what to do.
I put all my trust into Implanon, and never had a doubt in mind, it just would, stop working.

I hate how my doctor said it's impossible to get pregnant, too.

If anyone has any help or advice, it would be much appreciated.

I have an implanon as I def do not want more DC's. My periods stopped completely for the 1st year and are now back full force. It's not due to come out till 2010, could it have stopped working?

Hello everyone! Can I join your thread too pls?

I have the implanon implant and was very happy with it for the first 14-15 months but since then, the day I get AF I have become like a crazy woman! I can hardly talk, definitely can't think straight and it is totally horrible, I'm also cranky as hell and it makes me miserable. So now I don't think it is actually working! (not that I have any real evidence that it isn't!)

I had myself totally convince we were pregnant this month and then AF arrived a week late on wednesday (I've been having AF very regularly every month since the second month it was put in). Was pretty sad as we are planning to start TTC in March, but hey ho.

Now I'm thinking of having it removed and seeing what happens to my cycle between now and March. Anyone any advice about whether it is best to have it removed a few months in advance or does it not make any difference?

Ellen I'm so sorry that implanon hasn't worked for you - up until this last few months, it would have been a nightmare for us if it had failed too. I do hope things work out for you.

hi just wondering if anyone could help me out. i had my implanon fitted 3months ago and have bled constantly since it was inserted i spoke to my doctor and she said everything will settle down soon but there is nothing she can do as it is an expensive form of contraception and she cant take it out for another 9months she spoke about puttin me on the pill at the same time to regualte the bleeding but due to breast cancer running in my family it would be too dangerous, has anyone else had the same problem and how long did it take for your periods to settle down? its driving me mad. im 18 by the way

gem8 Sun 08-Mar-09 19:43:11

hi, jst want a few answers thts all.. ive been feeling ill lately and eating alot than i normally do. a few month ago i had an implant fitted and i havent had a period since. can u get pregnant with one in?? answers wud be great thank youu xx

EdwardBear Sun 08-Mar-09 20:07:33

Gem0308 - if it is really not working for you then you can insist on it being taken out.
Tel your GP that the side effects are too much for you and you insist it be removed. If necessary see another GP to the one you saw.

I had the implant pu in 6 months ago and I got constant bleeding for the first 3 months or so. It did settle down a bit but I'm still getting bleeding every couple of weeks which is very annoying so I think I will ask for mine to be taken out soon too.

I bled almost every day for over a year on implanon & had terrible mood swings, then got pregnant & had mc sad

saying that, I haven't been very lucky with contraception. I got pregnant with DS after using the pill & condoms. conceived DD1 even though I was on mini pill.

now have copper IUD...so far so good, and at least there aren't any hormones to make me go loopy grin

I have been on implanon for two years this august, I had not bled for months and this month it has kind of begun again. I have gained a little weight, am moody and think my breasts are swollen. Would be in bits if pregnant does anyone think I could be?

Hi, I am not sure what is going on, I have had the implanon for 1yr and 6mths, yet have been expiriencing severly sore breats (painful to even touch), skipped my period (which has never happened while i've had implanon) and I have a small baby bump. I'm terrified that I'm pregant again, I have one 4yr old son already and am in no way wanting another right now. The doctors say it's impossible and the odds are 1/1000 but searchin on the net I have come across many women who have infact become pregnant on implanon. Is this really something that happens to alot of women? And could I really be pregnant again?
