  • can i please get help
  • when my sister inlaw had hers removed she fell straight away! i think she had it in for a year and the pregnancy was a shock! not sure if she had a period . not much help i'm afraid. good luck when you start trying!!
  • Hiya,
    I had the implant for 2 years and because its very low dose hormones that is released, as soon as its removed, the effects are reversed immediately - as Carlyfee stated with her sister-in-law!!

    Good luck
  • hi im thinking of having mine taken out - only had it in since november 2007! lo is 13 months now and oh and i would like to start ttc. woman that put it in for me told me that you can fall pregs as soon as its removed, with no side effects!
    good luck

  • I had my implant removed 4 weeks ago tomorrow and have been having unprotected sex with my partner, ive had no period or spotting but am getting early pregnancy symptoms (tender nipples, toilet frequency, nausea and being so tired). Ive done 3 home tests which have all come back negative. I bled regularly through the implant and have missed one period so ive just put the period thing down to my body going back to normal after removal. has anyone else had these symptoms when coming off the implant, i would be grateful of knowing.

  • I have had my implanon removed since jan 2013 it will be a year this jan, and i still havent concieved. i moved upstate and now i am seeing a new ob, she stated that it can take up to a yr to get out of your system and even after that she said she couldnt help me concieve until after 2 yrs, that the implanon was a birth control that slowly shuts down your eggs(thats how i was understanding it) and that with me being a younger woman(under the age of 35) I shouldnt have even been put on it. i have been having unprotected intercourse with my husband since jan and no baby, ive seen the previous posts where ladies are saying that it leaves your system quickly and that you should be on another type of birth control 7 days prior to having implanon removed..i am so confused..please help

  • Had implanon for 3 years.was supposed to come out in April 2014 it's expired and still in my arm I am having insurance issues  , and it's now going on October 1st. Still no period, haven't had one since they put the thing in. Still not pregnant I keep purchasing OCPK $$ and I'm starting to worry. Also I am a bbw so it definitely should have left my system quicker/less effective I have 3 children I'm 30 years old what the heck could be going on down there

  • hi yes I had my inplalnt taken out last Friday and been trying for baby I have the early signs of being pregnant did tests and northing as yet got a funny feeling that i will be on soon I did have periods on the inplant but it weren't every month tho 

  • Hi did you find out if your pregnant I had my implant taken out the 16th of June 2015 and since then I've had really bad lower back pain dunno why 

  • I got my implant out 4 months ago, the nurse said my body would go back to normal after a couple of hours! BUT they advice you not to try for a baby for at least 3 months just to let your body get back to normal and for your periods to get back to normal. I took this advice and now I am 4 weeks pregnantimage

  • Hello am new to this so bare with me lol

    I had my implanon removed almost 3 weeks ago and I have not had a period since removal. While on implanon I had my period all the time. Just not july. I've been having symptoms such as headaches, dizziness,nausea, darkening of nipple and a lot of mucus not sure if that's a preggo symptom thou. I've taken 6 home pregnancy test all neg. My aunt thinks it may come out neg because I may still have the birth control med in me still. HELP ME WITH ANSWERS PLS

  • Hey Ladies, 

    I am also too new at all of this, but I'm hoping my experiences will help others, and I might even get some advice.

    I got my implant out on the 27th August, not too long ago.

    My partner and I have been trying to concieve since removal, I have hopes I will fall straight away but if I dont thats okay too.

    Ive been feeling extremely nauseous and I've been getting increasing cramps since I got the implant removed, I get dizzy, lightheaded, I'm starving but I feel so sick, I keep think AF has arrived only to find out therea no sign of it, I do think alot of the sypmtoms everyone is experiencing is just your body and hormones adjusting, alot of women that have just got their implant removed are experiencing similar symptoms, although there is a chance of pregnancy as soon as its removed, It's just a waiting game, we just need to try and relax and make some fun out of it. Im hoping to find some lovely ladies to befriend to share our journies with.
