You can but it is VERY RARE and usually due to improper placement. I thought I was for sure! (3months late and preg symptoms!) Turns out I have a cyst - a type that can cause a faint false positive on home preg tests, and explain ALL symptoms. 52 out of 2,406 in a 1999 FDA survey reported this, versus the MUCH less likely pregnancy. Cysts are common and unless they rupture there are few complications due to them. I'm sure you have your answer by now, but I thought this might help women googling Implanon pregnancies. :) An ultrasound will confirm one way or the other but I had to go to the ER cause when you say "I think I'm prego on Implanon." to your OB he might just laugh you out of his office, like mine did.

i really feel for you coz that implant is really causing you some damage,but first things first,visit a doctor and get that thing off coz it aint good for you then get a pregnancy test done to eliminate the chances of you being pregnant then if not pregnant get anatha family planning method that is going to suit you.your doctor will help you choose

I would get in to a doctor ASAP - the implant could definitely be damaged and will cause more harm than good now - I would have it removed immediately. As Kate said if it is damaged and/or you ARE pregnant, the hormones could hurt your baby if you are pregnant.
You can definitely get pregnant even with the implant - no birth control is foolproof - my daughter is a "pill" baby - they don't often mention that if you are taking antibiotics it can interfere with the effectiveness of the pill - same type of thing with any other birth control.
I would get yourself in to the doctor, have the implant removed, and get a pregnancy test.

First -- I'd see a doctor and get that implant removed ASAP. It is clearly causing you serious problems. Birth control can be dangerous for many women, as it messes with your hormones. If you ARE pregnant, it will be very dangerous to your baby to receive those hormones.

No birth control is foolproof. You can always get pregnant unless you are not having sex.

Please see a doctor and get this removed and/or fixed ASAP, as well as getting a pregnancy test.
