I got my implant on october 22nd this year and now in december i am having alot of pregnancy signs Increased appitite, Fatigue, Gas, Bloated, Headaches, Dizzy spells, Light headed and im urinating more then before I had a period for two weeks after getting it and have not got another period yet and im one of those that get a period on time every month no matter what it may be short or long but it always comes and between these symptoms and no period im freaking out that i may be pregnant and im an overweight woman so im wondering if the percent is different for me? Is there a chance I could be pregnant? How many people have gotten pregnant on this?

What you describe sounds more like side effects. Irregular periods are a hallmark of implants like Implanon/Nexplanon. If you are worried, test for pregnancy, also talk with your gynecologist. I dont think she/he would have put one in you if they didnt feel it would work for you! The percentage for pregnancy is very small-2% or less.

I had the implanon for four years, i had it in a year over expiration. I took many pregnancy test while i had it, like 3 a year. All negative. But i would get scared i was pregnant. I just bought dollar store test. And the last year i had it in it was expired and i was having unprotected sex, i had it removed in January and got pregnant in February so im a high believer that you wont get pregnant with this birth control. Im wanting to get another one
