Breastfeeding & Implanon

I have been breastfeeding for 13mo without a period. I am getting Implanon on Monday. I'm assuming I'll start a period because of the birth control... Did you breastfeed, get on implanon, and continue to not have a period? I hope that's my case. lol

I don't know about the implanon, but I started taking the mini pill and still haven't gotten my period yet at 6 months. The implanon is a much higher dosage of hormones though.

Hormonal birth control can kill your milk supply if it contains estrogen. In particularly sensitive women, even progesterone-only birth control can cause a drop in supply.

Ok... irrelevant to my post...

I had 1 just before getting it placed and haven't had any since. I got mine in January I think.
No issues bf or with supply.

It's partially relevant since implanon is hormonal. I'm not sure about your op though. I was going to get nexplanon but at that appt is when I got my bfp. Nexplanon is the current version of implanon that was created because of lawsuits from implanon.
