... stomach most of the time, my breast and nipples are sore since then and my breast gets swollen sometimes. I even had one day where my nipples were leaking a little cloudy liquid. Just last night I had a horrible headache and I took a pain pill with caffeine, an hour later after I ate dinner my stomach felt really weird. I had a bit of diarrhea and then I felt really nauseated. I'm not sure if I could be pregnant, my husband and I are using protection by condoms since I got it removed but I did have unprotected sex before I had it removed. The first two years and 7 months while on the Implanon on I didn't have my period at all until the last 5 months I started having regular periods. Is there a chance I could be pregnant since before I had my Implanon removed, or could it just be the removal side effects, and should I wait and see until my period is supposed to happen to take a pregnancy test or should I go ahead and take one?
I got my Implanon removed 2 weeks ago, and I've had so many side effects. I feel sick to my...

I got my nexplanon inserted last Aug, 2020. And a month after, all the BAD side effects started hitting me. fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, sleepy & tired all the time, including non stop bleeding till now.
And ofcourse due to it, I'm deciding to get it removed. Hopefully I don't get more any more side effects, than the ones I've already been having, with it inserted.
I have decided to go hormone free for the first time in 11 years. I realized I don’t even know my real self lol. I have Nexplanon for 2 years now and will have it removed in two days. Kind of anxious for the next phase, I know it won’t be easy.
I was on estrogen for 9 years when I had a bad cyst in my ovary and my doctor decided that hormone wasn’t a good option for me anymore. I used to love the pill - I knew when my period would come, no cramps, no headaches and 3/4 days period only. Since I had the Nexplanon, I have no idea when my period will come and sometimes it will last for almost two weeks! I also have cramps for the first time in my life, feel fatigued all the time and even though I don’t blame the implant for putting on all 25lbs, I have extreme difficulty in losing even 2 lbs, no matter how hard i am try (i always lost weight super easy) - can anyone relate to the weight part? . Anyways.. wish me luck! Hope you all had overcome the hard first weeks!
Hi everyone, can anyone please help me! I have had the implanon for 6years one after the other and I have been ok on it never had a period though in all that time, it ran out nov 18 but I haven't had it removed as I've been going to the doctors as I've been so anxious and panicked and it's ruining my life I can't even go out and been feeling so low and just been feeling horrible that doctors put me on anti depressants, to deal with the anxiety and low moods. But reading up about the implant I think I am having withdrawals from the hormone levels and that my body must be thinking what's going on! Can anyone relate? Or has anyone else experienced this? I need to get in to the doctors this week to check of it is this what's causing my anxiety as I'm praying it can be sorted as I'm looking hope! Literally feel all over the place and not at all like me! Could this be the implanon has ran out and these are the side effects of it? As I've never felt this bad in my life? Any help would be much appreciated please :)
I haven't had mine removed yet, but it expired beginning of November last month. This recent period I just started has me thinking the lack of Nexplanon hormones is why I feel so horrible. Same as many of you: unbearable nausea, cold/chills, painful cramps and loose BMs, and horrible weepy spells. I also noticed I'm getting the old, familiar tingling/flushing sensation in my abdomen I used to get before a surge of prostaglandins releasing. That was back before I started the implant, so I assume this is those horrible hormones resurfacing with a vengance. To be fair, I also have other medical issues, but my specialist for those says they don't think my recent symptoms are related them.
I had my implant out three weeks ago. First period began on the day and was extremely heavy. 3 weeks later i have come on again. I've hae symptoms such as been feeling and being sick, major stomach cramps, pains in my legs and back, the pain is waking me up and tablets isnt helping. I'm that heavy i slept for an hour and it was an absoute mess when i woke up. is anyone else experiencing this? I don't think im pregnant as i haven't had sex in 6 weeks and i was protected by the implant but has anyone else had this and know of a way to calm it down??
I had my implant out 3 weeks ago and the last 3 days Iv felt pretty crap. Head aches, sore throat, heavy eyes and on off nausea. I’m going to call the doctors tomorrow as I’m a bit of a worrier but this fills me with confidence that it’s just my body adjusting to the fact Iv had the hormone for 9 years and finally wanted a break. Does it go away after a week or so??
I got the Nexplanon in December and just had it removed 3 weeks ago. I bled the entire time, everyday for 5 months. I had no other side effects. Before getting it removed I asked my doctor if there was anything I could do to stop the bleeding. I was prescribed a low dose of estrogen for one week and nothing changed. The physician said I could wait another month and then take two weeks of the same medication. I was over it by this point and chose to get it removed. Removal wasn’t bad, a little less painful than when I got the implant. I started the pill the day the Nexplanon was removed and stopped bleeding immediately except for about a week later I spotted for a couple days. Since getting the Nexplanon removed my hormones have been all over the place and I have been experiencing pretty bad anxiety, depression, and have gained 10lbs as well. I’ve been so emotional, it’s terrible. The nurse I spoke with said it can take up to 3 months for my hormones to get back to normal levels. If you’re considering getting this implant, DON’T.
It has been about one month now since removal. I have a few occurrences of very faint spotting but still no period. I see my Dr for my follow up in 2 weeks. Not sure what my body is doing
I got my Nexplanon Removed about 3 weeks ago after 2 months of having it. I bled the ENTIRE TIME i had the implant, and there was no way I was going to live like that for the next three years. After i got it out, I had THE HEAVIEST CLOTTED PERIOD OF MY LIFE. I WOULD NOT STOP BLEEDING. Went to the ER because I was scared to death. The doctor said she had seen this before with patients who recently had the Nexplanon removed. It was seriously scary and NOT NORMAL. My period stopped after 2 weeks. Now I am very tired and somewhat depressed. I also have severe pregnancy symptoms (have NOT been intimate ONCE since Ive had it out, so 1000% sure im not pregnant). I have been feeling so nauseous, just like I did during the first trimester of being pregnant with my son. That is the only way I can describe how I'm feeling- first trimester of pregnancy. I am exhausted, and all I want to do is sleep, which is not an option. I know its my hormones going all over the place.
Straight up, this is horrible advice, (and a joke) but you're better off getting pregnant than having this thing in your arm. LOL!
Hey ladies ! I just had my nexplanon removed 3 days ago and I'm experiencing extreme tiredness and stomachaches... I've been reading through threads for a few hours now and can't find anything on this but did any of you experience vagional dryness after getting it taken out? My husband thinks I'm not attracted to him anymore which definitely isn't the case. I just want to get to the bottom of this !!! I had the WORST 3 years of my life with this thing in my arm and I thought once I got it out everything would stop! But boy was I wrong. It seems to be just bringing even more problems not that it's gone !
It has now been one week since mine was removed. I am only spotting. I had problems with headaches last week and my breast are tender. I also feel unusually bloated.
Hi I had implants in for 13 years and not had one period iv just had my implant taken out 4 weeks ago and Iv had the worse headaches and cramps and now my breast are very sore is this normal
Well girls turned out I was pregnant with my now 3 year old daughter, I think that might have been part of why I was feeling the way I did, after I gave birth I had the nexplanon implanted again, same side effects, I get it removed next month and I really can't wait, after this one I won't ever go back to the implant. My hair falls out alot, it's so thin now, and I feel depressed and have bad anxiety, I feel tired all the time and I've gained weight since I had put in, and no matter how hard I work at losing it, I never can get past 10 pounds. I've had a period almost every month on this one, with the first implant, my period went away for 2 years. Once I get it removed I will be back to let you all know how im feeling off of it.
I had nexplanon in for 3 years and it was removed 3 days ago. I feel horrible. Cold, achy, extremely fatigued and depressed. I struggled to hold my eyes open at work and was unsuccessful at times. I can't understand why getting off nexplanon is so different than getting off of birth control pills. When I came off the pills I did not have any of these nasty symptoms. Is anyone else feeling bad after removal?
OMG I have no answer but to ask how are u now? I just got mine out I almostdied
