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 Nexplanon allows you to get pregnant but then aborts the pregnancy every time. That's why they say it's the most effective. And that's why your periods can be extremely irregular and sometimes heavier or lighter than others.
I just went through this and found out from my doctor that they have had women get pregnant while using the Nexplanon.

Nexplanon does not allow you to get pregnant. It releases hormones that mimic pregnancy so that your body will not allow release of an egg, therefore cannot be fertilized. This is not an abortion drug.

I got the implant in but it expired this month. I don't have the money to remove it or insurance. My last period was April. May I spotted for two days, which never happened. And I still haven't gotten my period. I did 3 home test it they all say negative. Should I be concern? Should I go to the hospital?

I'm using nexplanon and I got pregnant with twins. I lost them because my stupid doctor would NOT remove my BC.

I hate when people answer like this. There is ALWAYS A CHANCE on any bc, short of having tubes tied.

Hey so I got the Nexplanon Aug. 2014 after being on Implanon for four years. I didn't have my period for two months. I had to taken an antibiotic for a cold. And then started spotting a little in the month of October. For the past two weeks I've been spotting it's not as heavy as a period would be. I've went from 110-130 within these two months my breast are huge ! Can I be pregnant ? Or is this just a light period ?

Hey gals,
A while back I was pouring over every site that was talk about whether or not you could be pregnant on Nexplanon. I originally got Implanon in Aug 2012 spotted two days in Sept and that was it haven't had a period since then and the only other side effect I had was a little bit of tenderness in my breasts. Aug 2015 I got it replaced with Nexplanon. Shortly afterwards I was feeling tired all the time but blamed it on my job. in Sept I started Bloating but thought it was Constipation from a new med I started. But it didn't go away it got bigger. By Oct I was 6 inches bigger around the waist but only 4 pounds heavier and it was very round and the skin tight. I had massive carsickness morning sickness in general alot of nausea. I was also Craving foods badly and avoiding ones I normally love, My cup size went up, I feel like I had a balloon in my stomach, my hips hurt alot and I had to pee what seemed like ALL the time. After 2 urine tests a blood test and an ultrasound to be sure, I am definitely NOT pregnant. But it is to the point where I have people asking me if I am...

I had nexplanon inserted in late January of 2015, I had it removed September 2nd of 2015, due to spotting every few days for over a month, it was annoying, I then started to feel sick and assumed it was the stomach flu going around, but my hubby bought a test which I took at the end of September, came back negative, OK no big deal, babies are not in my plan, so in the mid of October 2015 I went for a physical and my urine is positive, went back for a blood draw and my hcg levels are over 50000, my Dr said in at least 11 weeks pregnant, which means yes you can get pregnant on this bc. Now I'm waiting for the ultrasound appt. Looks like babies are now in my plan.

I've been on the nexplanon for a lil over a year and I've been gaining more than usual weight on it, been having two periods a month, constant headaches, moody, back aches, lower abdomen pain, dizziness, tiredness, hungry all the time, bloated just don't feel normal... Do other moms have this feeling on it?

So basically when your period it regulates and you bleed for like 4 months straight it's because you were pregnant and it aborted the baby?

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.
