 So after i had my third child my husband and i decided i should get the Implanon birth control. i got that mid april 2013. i never got a cycle while on it. in november i started getting really gross dark brown goopy discharge for 7 days every 30 days (kinda like a cycle was trying to come back but the blood wasnt red it was just gross) with it i got horrid cramps. so dh and i decided to get it out. in november i could still feel it, by the end of december it was harder to find but could still feel it. i got it removed january 15th and the night before it was removed i almost couldnt find it. well to make a long story short i almost had to have surgery to get it out because it had gone deeper into my arm. it took 2 drs and over 40 mins to get out. since then i have had nausea and horrible cramps. we have had sex 3 times since removal. all unprotected. i recently read that if the inplant is too deeo (which mine was) it is less effective and can even stop being effective. i am wondering if you ladies have any ideas for the horrid cramps and nausea. do you think lack of hormones or my body trying to return to "normal" or pregnant?
(if symptoms dont leave my next wed i will be calling dr because 2 weeks would be enough time for my body to get rid of hormones and "normal" out i think.)

So i took a test this morning and it was negative. it was weird though. the area where you see a neg. or pos. turned compleatly blue and then when the line came up it was very faint (a faint negative?) so idk whats going on. i would love to know why im always cramping, always nausous, and exhausted. ill wait a couple more days and if i still feel like this ill call dr.

I would take a test for peace of mind. If you still don't get your period then talk to your doctor about it and see if they can do a blood test or figure out whats going on. Good luck

I'd poas too. Your body is balancing and that can always cause neasea and cramping. Ice packs and rrl should help.

Sorry, pee on a stick (pregnancy test). Red raspberry leaf, tea, capsule or tincture is good for balancing the female system (and it's fantastic throughout pregnancy)

Check local herbal shops.

I didn't like the Implanon, I was bleeding with it in almost every day so got it out within 3 months.  But for you I would take a test for peace of mind.
