Hello again. Having trouble getting pregnant after using hormonal birth control does occur. I ask the specific questions about age and now long the implant has been removed, because that is a very important part of this.
Since you used this for 24 years, and assuming it may have started as young as 16, you are at least forty years old. Becoming pregancy at that age is difficult. I would suggest that you work with a gynecologist and have some blood tests done. Your hormonal readings have a lot to say what additional hormones you may need. I had a baby jusyt before forty and it required a lot of support. Four years of infertility research, surgery and treatments with one excellent physician.
However, if you are meaning that you are 24, then you may well need time for your body to adjust. At least three months after having it removed. Again, seeing the gynecologist for blood tests will tell you if you are back to normal with your hormonal levels. FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) will be of great interest as this will say how you are ovulating and if your levels would support a pregnancy.
