  • Did you just get the Implanon? Because the hormones it releases in your body could give you these symtpoms......

  • No My son is now 10 Months old and i got it when he was 6 weeks so its been about 9 months and i just started feeling like this in the past 2 weeks. Im also late on my period.

  • hmmm.. Well I would wait a couple days then try taking another test again... You can even call the doctor that did the Implanon and tell them whats going on...

  • lots of those things can cause you to have no periods at all. My sister has one and she got her period at first andthen they just stopped! I would call the dr tho cecuaswe i'm sure if you're prego you will want to have it removed!

  • I had implanon in and i didnt have a period with it. It is progeston (sp?) only bc. That means that if your body takes to it the way it should you wont have a period. It tricks your body into thinking its already prego so it wont release in egg. I dont think your pregnant but to be on the safe side call your dr. If you fall in that 1% it is more likely it is tubal pregnancy and your doctor will need to check you over carefully. Good luck, keep us posted.
