  • Probably your implanon. GO TO THE DOC or check your insert or pamphlet for side effects. Research on the internet side effects of your implanon. We do not know if you are pregnant. If you are on BC and have a - test, chances are you arent

  • I've had Implanon for a little over a year,had problem with irregular bleeding.Sometimes my period last very long,or I dont get it at all.I'm having all the pregnancy symptoms now,hpt turns - or invalid. But then again I didn't get a + result until 2 months of pregnancy with my first one.I called the implanon line to ask abt it.They said it's possible to be pregnant while you are on implanon,and there is "slightly" higher chance that it could be ectopic pregnancy so they suggested me to see my OB/GYN asap.During the implanon research, 6 women reported pregnant during 1, 2, and 3 year of having implanon in.
    Best you can do is get a blood test/ultrasound. I'm going in to get that done in about an hour. Will post again when I get result.
    Another thing, implanon could be less effective for people who are overweight or are taking certain medication.If still confused or have more question, just call the implanon line.
