Ok I have been on Implanon since January 26, 2014. I started coughing a lot during the 1st week of February - it progressed to wheezing. I went to my Doctor 2x and he couldn't figure out what was going on. He sent me to the ENT. He couldn't find anything. Went to my allergist and found that I have asthma. I have never had asthma before. Has anyone else had this type of reaction after having the Implanon inserted?
Well i have asthma and I still had the implanon implanted, I did have shortness of breath while on the implanon and my asthma did act up more then usual since i got the implanon, so maybe what happened is that you had asthma and didnt know until it started acting up while on the implanon. My wheezing eventually went away after a while, i would use my inhaler to control it; but thru out the whole 3 years on the implanon i had the shortness of breath unexpectedly happen many times, if your not comfortable just have it removed, i hung in there the whole 3 years but we are all different.
