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
I've had the nexaplanon in my arm since March 2013. When I first got it I bleed for 4 months straight, then I started getting all of those same signs then my period came. And it was just a cycle your period will come and go as it pleases it's not going to be the same cycle for about a year. Then your body should
Get use to the hormones
I have a question I had the implant for my full three years and it expired this year February 5..I've never had anything go wrong. My periods been normal never have had a pregnancy scare, but I got my period on the nov. 16 and on the fourth day my and my husband had unprotected sex and (I know this is to much info sorry) he did cum in me. Well it's been almost two weeks and on the 27th on nov. I was spotting but only when I wiped, and it was a light pink this happened off and on for two days..and I've been having horrible headaches, nausea, sensitive to smells, constant running to the bath room, feeling light headed sometimes, and having light cramps like I'm on my period..I've been pretty much having the same symptoms if pregnancy like I did when I was pregnant with my four year old..my son has also been really clingy and whiny..I was wanting y'all's opinion..what do you think could be wrong? Could I possibly be pregnant or is it side affects?
Im 21 Ive had this implant since May 2014 I told them I wantes the threw year that would make May 2016 when it should be removed. I had a period like normal the first year, well the last year or two I haven't had a period at all. Last month I had sex unprotected and he didnt "pull out" a few days after we had sex I bleed like a period I was likw what in the world?! Since its been so long ... It was light lasted maybw 4days but was more like spotting . Hes the first guy ive slept with in a almost a year ... Its been about two weeks since we had sex but im just not wanting to eat no appreciate at all nothing tastes good I feel sick not nauseous though and I havent had any more period symptoms. I also looked on my card that I had to keep from thw doctors office and it says i have a three year implant but they marked it needed to come out in may 2015!!! Im freaking out maybe they mixed up the year on the card !!!
I have nexplanon and after 6 months of constant spotting it just stopped. All together. No pregnancy symptoms but it's quote nerve wracking. I should be happy that I don't have to wear pads every singe day of my life but I can't help but kinda be scared. They say the mist changed happen between 6-12 months so maybe my body is now just adjusted? Opinions?
