A friend of mine has been on the IMPLANON birth control since February this year, so about 9 months now. For those who dont know, the IMPLANON birth control is a 2 inch long rod that looks like a ink tube from a pen that is inserted into your bicep. Her particular dosage is good for up to 3 years.

She still gets periods, which the paperwork said she shouldn't be. She says they come every once in a while... In June she bled the whole month, then nothing until last month I guess.

She has a lot of pregnancy symptoms, such as the sore boobs, nausea (which she didnt have with her first pregnancy) and smell sensitivity...

Her dr has been having her come in once a month to make sure she's not preggo, but she hasnt been in for about 6 weeks or so. She feels stupid she told me, going in all the time...

She wouldn't really worry about it, but her s/o has 'super sperm' and got his ex pregnant twice (she lost both pregnancies) when she was sterile due to multiple medical conditions...


Since she doesnt have internet, I thought I would ask for her...


ETA-- If you or someone you know has gotten pregnant on the IMPLANON, could you please tell us your experience??

 A close friend got pregnant with a child while using implanon in 1989.   Basically she said, it just happened... I am sure she doens't remember much seeing as that was 23 years ago.
