Anyone here got pregnant whilst on Implanon?(295 Posts)
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......
Hi just reading all comments on here and starting to worry I've bin on the implant now for 5 years yes I'm on the second one and have a year left my periods have always bin a bit in regularly but last month it was strange real light and only four days and this month I am 6 days late apart from having itchy boobs I havent had any other symptoms.... Could I be pregnant as I was under the impression you couldn't get pregnant on implant?

Hey everyone. I'm nineteen and recently engaged. I only got my implant in March of this year. Lately I've been experiencing some pain around and near my implant. It's strange though because there is no irritation that's clearly visible. I've been having very severe mood swings and must say that I believe there is some depression. My breasts are very tender to the point where I don't even want to touch them and they've noticeably gotten bigger and are very heavy. I have headaches constantly and seem to have gotten a little chubby tummy going. I've taken pregnancy test but all have come out negative. My fiance isn't as worried as I am but he doesn't have to go through all this. I'm hoping it's phantom pregnancy because I have heard that on this form of birth control that is a possibility. However I also learned that certain medications can lessen the effects of the implant. I've got another appointment tomorrow but I don't know if it will help much. All the doctors say the same thing. It's fool proof, but there have been so many cases of woman actually getting pregnant on this. I'm very worried and don't know what to do. Is the implant harmful to the baby if I am pregnant, and should I get it taken out? I've noticed that the doctors really haven't informed much on the implant and when I ask about it I get very cryptic answers. I don't know who to go to and I'm a very confused young woman in need of some help.
Plus not only that, I'm getting bigger.
I've been on this implant since December 31,2013 for having a miscarriage. After the implant I was bleeding for about 5+ months constantly which was normal coming from the doctor, afterwards I've had regular periods. My last period was around August 27(the time I usually get i), but during September I haven't gotten it. I'm extremely scared because I've been having pregnancy symptoms, such as cravings, sore brest, and nausea, ect...)
Hey guys, I got the implant in August 2013 and have only had two periods since. Oct 2013 and June 2014. My boyfriend and I in the past few weeks have gone a little overboard with "having fun" and now he swears I'm pregnant. I've been waking up nauseous in the middle of the night, nearly throw up a couple times a day, pee constantly, extremely exhausted, and now bloated and sore around my lower stomach. I have been pregnant before, about 4 years ago. The only symptom I had that time was craving cookie dough ice cream 24/7. I had mc'd at 13 weeks. I really need some advice on this because I've noticed my implant has also moved around in my arm too.
Hi guys, I'm had implanon put in December 2011 after having baby boy, my doctor warned me that it is very possible to become pregnant during your last year on the implant, I am more than halfway through the 3 year mark so I started testing last month and will continue for the last couple of months until time for removal just to be on the safe side, and for those who think they might be pregnant....your not crazy, just test and don't give up until you know for sure if you are pregnant or not because it's not impossible
I am new at this. But i am on the implanon for about almost 10 months. And i feel im getting pregnancy symptoms. like throwing up, nausea, tiredness. I know those are only little symptoms but could it be possible. I know doctor its impossible to get pregnant. i have taken a pregnancy test but comes back negative. idk if im doing it too soon or not.
Maybe I can offer the voice of reason and sensibility here.
I hate to tell any, and possibly, all of you this, but there is a chance for you to still get pregnant whilst using ANY contraceptive method available. The only exceptions to the rule being sterilization and, at the most extreme, a hysterectomy.
Also, to the supposed 19 year old girl on her second implant/implanon. Please stop attention seeking. It would be impossible for you to have had a second one in a little over a year at your age and therefore this leads me to believe that you have, clearly, not done your homework. The only reason you can have it changed so soon is if you have a reaction, and even then they would try you on a second after the first 12 weeks or sooner (adverse reactions usually occur within 10 weeks) with a one month rest from your next full period. If you had a reaction to the implant/Implanon, you would be back on tablet contraceptives....... I suggest you read a few medical journals and talk to your GP about it, a little more in depth next time perhaps!
It is TOTALLY possible to fall pregnant on the implant, no matter the brand, (Implanon is a brand by the way). It's the same as condoms and the injection.... christ it even has the same percentage chance of pregnancy as the injection. It also can cause some side effects, such as the carrying of excess water (which can be evident in both breasts and stomach) . If the water carrying is in the breast area then nipples and breasts in general will feel tender.
I mean FFS!!!! Do half of you attention seekers even know what the fuck this website is about? What it's for? I guess not.
One word for you time wasters.......................
Just inbox me the answers please, would mean a lot to me
Has anyone been caught pregnant on the implant and if so is it different to not having the implant in?! Like Iv started bleeding and I have the implant in... My boyfriend thinks I'm pregnant as Iv felt this last time I was pregnant but MC :'( just want answers before i do take a test
Did anyone answer your question about the "pregnancy not showing up if on the implant?" Iv been having pregnancy feelings too.. But Iv also heard the results won't show up because your hormones..
I had a miscarriage last year before I was put on the implant and had the same feelings i do now.. Please re
Did you ever notice or even after you found out you were pregnant, was the implant still intact?? They say it usually only happens if the implant slips out of place????
Wow.!!! Are you saying the implanon was still in her arm while she was pregnant.???
This happened to my friend so everyone take note! She was only 17, loved life partying with friends ect. Last person i expected to call me and tell me she's pregnant. She had the implant for almost 4-8 months, she thought she was just putting on weight. So she took various pregnancy tests, home ones and professional ones, all came out negative! Next thing she is in doctors getting blood test for something totally different and the doctor tells her she is 5 month pregnant and has no choice but to keep the baby! She was devistated, unprepared and totally in shock. But now 2 years later she has a beautiful baby girl.
Hello, I have had the implant for about 1 and a half years now. It is my second time having it in, I am convinced mine isn't working either. As I write this now, my back is killing, my boobs are feelin so heavy and itchy, I have a terrible headache, this heartburn keeps me awake all night even though I feel absolutely exausted, I actually vomited about 15 minutes ago. Having the implant literally drives me crazy, I'm always thinking I'm pregnant, taking a test and it comes out negative. So tomorrow I'm going to the doctors and getting it removed, it totally plays with my brain!
I have also been on implanon for 2 years in February. All was absolutely perfect until 2 months ago. I have been having crazy pregnancy symptoms and my lower stomach is now hard. I have had a nurse tell me the test doesn't lie and im not pregnant and a b*tch dr saying to me did you think you were pregnant because youre not. yet all either place have done is a urine pregnancy test. I have read a ton on reviews that this would happen and they were still pregnant. at this point I feel like im losing my mind because no one will tell me what else it could be if not pregnancy or implanon (again, no one is really looking into it either). I want to know if this has happened to anyone else. ive heard of implanon causing every symptom as pregnancy but can it make your stomach hard like that?
I'm confused on what to do. I've had my implant for almost 2 yes normal periods and everything until last month I didn't get my period. And I have all the symptoms of being pregnant but the test came back negative could I be pregnant
