I'm overweight and on implanon, ive only had 1period, been having weird symptoms. What could be wrong?
I would like to know if I’m pregnant, I have the symptoms, but I have the implanon, so I’m unsure?
Can do preg. Test: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
Progesterone implant: Implanon is a small, rod shaped implant that is placed just under the skin on the inside of your upper arm. It continuously releases progesterone, which prevents ovulation and renders the endometrium less favorable for implantation. It provides contraception for 3 years. Implanon is considered a top tier contraceptive method (most effective) comparable to an iud or even permanent sterilization. ...Read more
Wondering if there are any symptoms associated with an expired implanon implant? Mine is one year overdue
Pregnancy possible: If the Implanon is in place longer than the typical 3 years, it may have exhausted its supply of hormone. So pregnancy is a possibility. Some sources cite a 4 year duration for contraception. Aside from that, the only other concern is having a foreign body under the skin. Btw, Implanon is no longer available in the us. ...Read more
I had my implanon remove Dec.4th, I've been feeling extremely nauseous. Is this a side effect from the hormones leaving my body?
Doubtful: This is not one of the usual side-effects of removal. You may have a stomach bug. Do remember that you can get pregnant as soon as the week after removal of the implanon but this would be too early to be causing the nausea. Hope you feel better soon. If not, check with your PCP. ...Read more
I had my out of date implanon implant out a month ago, when should I expect body to be back to normal? Implant was in 3 years over what it was meant.
Your body is already: Since the implant "was in 3 years over. ..", its content of the progestin hormone was probably used up and therefore you have had your body "back to your normal" all that time. Consult your gynecologist if you are concerned about your menses, pregnancy or need another effective LARC (long acting reversible contraceptive) like Implanon and set your "reproductive health plan" with that clinician. ...Read more
I had Implanon removed 3 months ago, had 1 normal cycle, now I'm 2 weeks late with neg HPT and strong pregnancy symptoms. Could this be from Implanon?
I just removed my implanon, how long does it take for the hormones to leave the body and have my period go back to normal?
Totally variable: Could take weeks to months before your hypothalamus, pituitary & ovaries wake up from their hormonal haze and realize they are no longer being down-regulated by the Implanon. Very individualized from patient to patient. Remember, you will ovulate before you get your first true period. ...Read more
I got my implanon removed on 9/03/15. I haven't started my period yet! Now I'm getting symptoms that I could be pregnant. Can I be pregnant?
Got the implanon Feb 10th, had my period Feb 20th. Haven't had a period or any symptoms sense. Took an HPT 2 weeks ago and was negative. Concerning?
Not uncommon: This form of birth control can cause your periods to decrease or stop all together (although this soon after implantation not common). One of it's selling points.

Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more

Implanon effects: Spotting and/or irregular bleeding is common with implanon, particularly during the first 90 days, after which the irregular spotting should improve.
