Has anyone ever fallen pregnant on the implant?

I had the implant put in last year June after haveing my second child. I was told it was the safest to use as its supposed to be 99.9% affective. However lately I feel sooooo pregnant. I have dizziness and naseua, food cravings and extreme tiredness. I lost almost a stone recently and have put it all back on sad.

I have been trying to find some info on it and alot of people are having the same feelings. last night a swear I felt movement - and not like normal wind movement. I was completely freaked out. I did a test on Sunday which came out negative. I dont get my periods much at the moment so could not tell how far gone I would be if I was pregnant and have now read that after a certain time the hormone level is too low to be picked up on a home test. Is this true?

Has anyone gone through the same things, fallen pregnant on it or can any one shed some light on this...

I think you are being paranoid -
1- you have a negative test. If you had pregnancy symptoms as you describe you would be at least 4-6 weeks preg. A test would show positive.
2- If you had symptoms as you describe you would not be pregnant enough to feel movement.

My friend had similar on the injection - she turned pout to be seriously anaemic. Go to the GP and have a blood test but it's very unlikely you are pregnant.

I had the implant untill last year, did lots of looking online, and found absolutely no one that had ever fallen pregnant while using it. The only cases were when it hadn't been inserted properly, and wasn't even in there!

I think because you really feel like you aren't using anything IYSWIM, you just get a bit paranoid!
