Hi there I am a mother of 2 boys (4years ans 16 months.) After my second child I got the nexplanon implant and was told by my doctor it was the most effective contraception.

Everything was fine for the first 10 months no side affects,no periods. About 8 weeks ago had a period on and off for about 2 weeks then nothing then I had light (brown) bleeding for 2/3 days. Since then I've noticed my stomach looks bloated and round, my breasts have gotten a bit bigger and I'm constipated all symptoms from my first 2 pregnancies.

I went to my doctor but she looked at me as though I had 2 heads and dismissed it completely. I read on net that if I do a home test it will show negative regardless due to hormones in nexplanon.

So now I am a bit anxious and wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms or infact gotten pregnant whilst using nexplanon?

The time it takes for your body to return to normal after any hormonal birth control is different for every woman. I found some really interesting information that will assist you as it did me. Information on how to get pregnant fast and have a healthy pregnancy, the hidden truth behind everyday activities & their impact on your fertility, simple things you can do every day to increase your chances of conceiving, even in women with PCOS or have an irregular cycle, how to lose weight in a healthy manner which will mean improving your chances of getting pregnant, and so much more. I believe there is a holistic approach to our shared problems rather than more and more drugs. Pregnancy for me is a total approach in both mind and body. Here is the link FYI http://aboutgettingpregnant.com
Let me know how you go with it ok.

Update: After that early, long spotty period in December, I missed it in January, had two normal periods Feb. and March. A 10 day period in April that was a week late...then in May it happened again. I felt terribly pregnant. Ovulated around the 10th based on EWCM. DH said I was very lubricated (unusual for me on birth control). From 2 dpo I became gassy, heartburn, jabs in abdomen, back cramps, nausea, a few bad dizzy spells, and one really horrid Migraine day (19th). On the 27th I had pink CM. (Que Panic....again). The 28th it turned to light brown CM mixture. The 29th Brown/red. Then watery red spotting/very light period through the 8th of June. BFN on all tests. Thought it was done, but after intercourse there was more red spotting that turned brown the next day. Finally done?? On the 10th I had no spotting, but had a smear of EWCM with white streaks, and two spots of red/brown that reminded me of snot. That was it. June 21st (9dpo-ish) I had clear CM with a small but notable red streak in it.... I checked all over down there and nothing else! Had not had intercourse in days. For 3 days my breasts have been extra sore! Can't stand to smoke my vaporizer, it makes me feel even more winded than I am oddly feeling already. (Growing very sick of it). Got a GP appointment the 25th to have Nexplanon removed or I will do it myself!! I got another BFN today. I don't know why I keep testing, when it's obviously this stupid birth control. I have 3 kids + custody of a grandbaby, and yet I would rather risk pregnancy than feel insane!

I have nexplanon for about 10 months. Had a baby boy last Dec. and I have a 6yr old and a 4 year old. I had no period due to breast feeding for 6 months then my usually light periods and migraine, cramps, bloating pms. I had a period the week before/of thanksgiving. We had intercourse 8 days ago then at day 5 after intercourse I felt exhausted. I just keep wanting to sleep all day. I also began very light brown spotting that barely needs a liner then once a day I have to change it when the spotting gets a tad heavier with a bit of red mixed with the brown. Then it goes very light spotty again! For three days now. So weird. I am craving sour cream! Ate it with Mac n cheese and as dip for my hot fries. Very weird... I have very mild cramping into my back but nothing needing my usual naproxen.... I am thirsty, running for the bathroom to pee, and needing to cry at random. Yes I get stressed and have anxiety issues at times of high stress, and my mother in law passed away recently, but I have experienced many losses over the years and never felt pregnant! Lol I did take two HPTs but it is too early and they were very very faintly pos. I know it could be an early miscarriage or the implant but it also could not be from what I have read.
