I'm 21 I've had implanon for almost 3 years. It's due out in September 2013 it's may 2013. I've never experienced Anything like this with implanon before. My breasts are super tender, feel like I'm gunna throw up at random times of the day mostly after I eat I get a weird throw up, up set stomach, I feel bloated or something (not sure never felt like this before) and I'm super tired all day. I'm worried I could be pregnant. I haven't taken a pregnancy test but everywhere I've read It come back Negative whether you are or not.

Well didn't get a pregnancy test today. I started my period which I haven't had in almost 3 years. Called my doctor as soon as it started. She said that the implanon is more than likely wearing off. If the flow gets any heavier she said to call her back it could be a miscarriage. Not a good day.!
No birth control method is 100% effective so there is always the possibility of pregnancy. Implanon should still be effective BUT the hormones it secretes can lessen considerably in these last few months so it could be this change in hormones that you are feeling. You may want to do a pregnancy test just for peace of mind. Be sure that you get into the gynecologist in time to get a replacement though.
It is always possible to get pregnant even with birth control. If you would be pregnant long enough to have symptoms you would have a positive test. They have to be done correctly, and doing them wrong is the biggest reason for failure. They should be done when you first get up in the morning, the first time you pee. And time it for the length of time it says in the directions. You are having different symptoms then is usual for you, so I would say see your dr and get a blood test done.
