My implanon has been in for nearly 4 years and I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant, but an at home test says I'm not. Can the inactive birth control make the test read negative for some reason?
No. Implanon will have no effect on a pregnancy test. You need to get it removed. When you test, be sure to use the very first void (pee) of the morning as it will be the most concentrated. Pregnancy tests look for a particular hormone in the urine that is only secreted by pregnant women. Using birth control of any kind will not affect this test. If you are still convinced you are pregnant, see your OB-GYN and get a blood test, they are more accurate. Have him remove the spent Implanon, if you are trying to get pregnant and especially if you are pregnant.
